FILE NO. 10-001
Public Library District's
Operation of a Raffle
The Honorable John J. Millner
Minority Spokesperson, Senate Criminal
Law Committee
State Senator, 28th District
290 Springfield Drive, Suite 225
Bloomingdale, Illinois 60108
Dear Senator    il
I have your letter in  ir         e a public library district qualifies as either a
charitable   g  ization    a  educational organization, as those terms are used in section 2 of
the Raffles Act (2 S 15/2(b) (West 2008)), thereby permitting the library district to seek a
license to operate a raffle. For the reasons set out below, it is my opinion that public library
districts have not been granted the requisite authority to operate raffles. Consequently, under
current Illinois law, a public library district may not operate a raffle under any provision of the
Raffles Act.
