Fiscal Year 2012 - Component Unit

Carbondale Public Library has been housed at its current site since 1983.


In 1982 local artists and craftsmen combined their talents to design and produce a quilt depicting Carbondale history. The quilt was completed in the spring of 1983 and hung near the entrance of the new library building when it opened on July 14, 1983.

The quilt is comprised of 24 blocks, each with 14 inch dimensions. Each square portrays an important person, historical building or historical event dating from the founding of Carbondale in 1852 to the burning of Old Main on the campus of Southern Illinois University in 1969.

Component Units are legally separate entities that meet any of three tests: 1) the primary government appoints the voting majority of the board of the component unit and is able to impose its will or is in a relationship of financial burden or benefits; 2) the component unit is fiscally dependent upon the primary government; 3) the financial statements would be misleading if data from the component unit were not included.

The Carbondale Public Library provides a general program of public library services to the residents of Carbondale. The primary source of revenues is local property taxes.

The summary statements, graphs and charts in the Introductory Section of this budget do not include the Library’s revenues, expenditures, change in fund balance amounts and full time equivalent number of employees since the Library is not considered a part of the primary government.
