Illinois State Police District 9 receives many questions regarding when a child can be moved to a booster seat or no longer needs a booster seat. Here is a cheat sheet of sorts to help answer some of those questions. The law requires children to be properly secured in a child restraint system. On the side of the child safety seat or booster seat will be information regarding the weight for which the seat is rated.
Thanks for the post. Here was my question on this topic to the ISP. "I have a 12 yr old, 5'9", 185 lb. son. He's bigger than 75% of females of any age and many 16 - 18 old males sitting and/or driving in the front. The law dictates a height for booster. Why not front passengers? Would I be given a ticket if stopped?"1 week ago
Reminder about book donations:
This morning, three large boxes and one large bag of books were left at the back door of the Library. While we DO take (and welcome!) donations for our Turkey Festival Book Sale, donations should be dropped off only during hours of operation. If donations are larger than one box or bag, we hugely appreciate a call ahead of time, since we don't have unlimited storage space and our sorting process takes time.
We know folks are cleaning out shelves and basements this time of year, so we field a lot of calls about donations. Here are donation guidelines, for those who are curious:
We take most gently used books, dvds, or cds in good, resalable condition. We cannot accept reference items (textbooks, medical books, encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc) or VHS tapes. Please check the condition and type of your donations before you bring them in.
Thank you for understanding, and thank you for supporting your community Library! ... See moreSee less
