April 7, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — Books donated by the Library of Congress will make their way to a public library in Henry County.

U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos (BOOS’-tohs) will stop at the Western District Library in Orion on Monday. She will deliver books donated by the venerable depository in the nation’s capital.

The Illinois Democrat will be making her 29th stop on her “Library of Congress Book Delivery Tour.” Among the gift will be the 1,450th book Bustos has donated from the congressional library since she began the program.

Orion is 173 miles (278 kilometers) west of Chicago.
