Chilli Man Chilli Creator's Estate Gives $500,000 to Springfield's Public Library


Lincoln Library’s main branch downtown is getting a modern-day makeover.

 

The first renovation of the library’s second floor since it opened in the 1970s will lead to the construction of a “cyber café” and reading room.

 

Library officials hope it will draw more people into the main branch.

 

The project is being funded by a $500,000 grant from the Joe Defraties Foundation… named for the creator of Chilli Man Chilli in Springfield.
