Public Library now a federal depository

Accessing documents online free to all

DIXON – The Dixon Public Library now is a federal depository, providing free access to government information and publications to anyone.

U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth added the library at 221 S. Hennepin Ave. to the list of 52 facilities in Illinois that are part of the U.S. Government Publishing Office’s Federal Depository Library Program.

Dixon’s is the only library in the Sauk Valley so designated, but you don’t need to be a member to access the federal documents, either digitally or in print.

Available are a catalog of all federal publications, the U.S. budget, the Congressional Record, a compilation of presidential documents, economic indicators, the text and an interpretation of the Constitution, a list of federal statutes, and so on.

“The board and staff of Dixon Public Library are excited to be part of the Federal Depository Library Program, as it allows us to share valuable resources with our patrons,” library Director Antony Deter said.

“We are proud to be one of the public libraries in the state of Illinois, and across the nation, offering unrestricted access to government documents in support of the public’s right to be informed.”

About 1,150 libraries across the nation are part of the program.
