IHLS placed a bulk order of the latest edition of Illinois Library Laws & Rules (2015) and they just arrived!

IHLS Member Survey - Deadline Friday

The Illinois Heartland Library System (IHLS) is currently undertaking a strategic planning process. We are gathering input from a broad range of IHLS member libraries. To that end, we are conducting a web-based survey to evaluate member library satisfaction with current services and identify future needs. Using the survey results, along with the results of focus group interviews conducted this March, the IHLS Board will meet this July to draft our next plan.
