Join eRead Illinois for the July 1 year and receive up to two months FREE

Whether eRead Illinois is your library’s only source of e-books or an additional source, participation provides your library’s community with access to a shared collection of over 54,000 e-books and e-audiobooks through Axis 360.

Right now, libraries that sign up for the membership year starting July 1 can get access to the eRead Axis 360 collection in May and June 2021 for no additional cost—that’s two extra months of access for your patrons at no additional cost to your library.

Libraries will be invoiced for a full year’s subscription (July 1, 2021, to June 30, 2022) to eRead Illinois Axis 360 after July 1. This only applies to new sign ups. Visit for more information.

The prorated FY21 membership fee for libraries that sign up for eRead Illinois between now and July 1 will be waived. This means that the sooner a library signs up, the sooner their patrons will gain access to the eRead Illinois Axis 360 shared collection at no additional cost to the library.
