The Documents Department of the Poplar Creek Public Library is a federal and State of Illinois depository. We have been designated a Federal Depository Library since 1980 in the Eighth Congressional District. The stacks in the Government Documents Department are open to the public, and users are welcome to browse and select materials. The Government Documents collection contains information published at government expense for public access as guaranteed by law, but remains the property of the U.S. Government. The collection also includes State of Illinois depository materials.

Participating public libraries in DC and five states -- Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and Nebraska -- will participate in the DASH for the STASH investor education/protection program and contest taking place April 15-May 15, 2015 as part of Financial Literacy Month.
A DASH for the STASH winner in each state and the District of Columbia will be awarded $1,000 to open or add to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), thanks to the nonprofit Investor Protection Institute (IPI), the Connecticut Department of Banking, the District of Columbia (DC) Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking’s Securities Bureau, the Office of the Illinois Secretary of State’s Securities Department, the Iowa Insurance Division’s Securities Bureau, the Office of the Missouri Secretary of State’s Securities Division, and the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance.
The DASH for the STASH contest works much like a scavenger hunt. But instead of collecting objects, players gather information and leave answers to quiz questions. To play, participants will go to participating libraries to find four posters. They will read each poster, access the quiz question and choose an answer.
No purchase is necessary to play. Winner will be chosen in a random drawing of eligible participants who log the correct answer for all four posters. Winner will receive the prize as $1,000 to open or add to an IRA, sent directly to the winner’s bank or brokerage firm for the express purpose of opening or making a 2015 contribution to an IRA. Winner must provide proof of eligibility to contribute to an IRA for 2015 and will not receive cash, nor any other form of payment in lieu of the IRA contribution. For IRA eligibility, check www.IRS.gov.
This investor education and protection program and contest is open April 15-May 15. IPI will randomly select contest winner(s) in early June 2015 from entries with all correct answers in each participating jurisdiction. Prize sponsors are the Investor Protection Institute (IPI) and participating State Securities Regulators. The IPI and all participating states provide independent, non-commercial investor education and protection material. For more information, visit http://www.iInvest.org.
