Published : Apr 28, 2021

IHLS Library Members:

This year, we are excited to bring to you the Illinois Heartland Library System Fiscal Year 2022 Draft Budget and Budget Narrative using OpenGov. OpenGov is our new cloud-based budgeting tool that provides easy access to data and information for both staff members and library members like you. Each chart is interactive in such a way that you can hover over chart components to highlight them or you can click the chart to explore more data.

Additionally, we present you with our FY2022 Draft Operational Plan. The Operational Plan includes our planned goals for Illinois Heartland Library System and our means to achieve them. As IHLS embarks on its 11th year as an organization, we move forward energized by the possibility of further refining our current member services and expanding our horizons. Areas of focus for FY2022 include additional opportunities for member networking and continuing education; advocacy for member libraries; and our unwavering commitment to the core services of resource sharing, delivery, and library automation.

Before our final submission of the FY2022 Budget, Budget Narrative, and Operational Plan to the IHLS Board of Directors and the Illinois State Library, we’d like to hear from you. We are very aware that our efforts are always made better and stronger when done in conjunction with member input. Please take a few minutes to look over the draft FY2022 Operational Plan and the draft FY2022 Budget and Budget Narrative and let us know what you think.
