Resource Card Signup Drive FlyerSPRINGFIELD – To encourage residents to take advantage of the Constituent Education Resource Card program, State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) is hosting a sign-up drive on Jan. 30 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Elk Grove Village Public Library, located at 1001 Wellington Ave. in Elk Grove Village.

At the event, members of the public are invited to sign up for a date and location to use the card, which grants free general admission to over a dozen Chicago-area museums.

“This card makes it possible for anyone in the district to access the fantastic educational resources that Chicago has to offer,” said Murphy. “I want to help as many people as possible take advantage of this cost-saving opportunity.”

Museums in the Park, a coalition of Chicago museums, sponsors the program in collaboration with the State of Illinois. The card provides free entry for up to four people at 15 Chicago-area institutions, including the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Adler Planetarium and the Shedd Aquarium.

Any resident of the 28th District may reserve the card on a first-come, first-served basis. The card may be checked out from Murphy’s office in Des Plaines the day before use and must be returned the following day. The card can also be reserved by contacting Murphy’s office at 847-718-1110 or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

“I’m excited to be able to provide this service,” said Murphy. “People deserve to enjoy art, history, science and culture without having to worry about financial barriers.”
