No Summer Reading in Royalton

Just 315 miles from Chicago: ROYALTON, Ill. - Residents of this small southern Illinois city who want something to read over the summer will have to look someplace other than their local public library.

The Franklin County town's library is closed for the summer because of a lack of money. It probably won't reopen until sometime in September after shutting its doors June 10.
