Illinois Library Laws & Rules discount

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

The books are available to our members at $22.50/copy.  We strongly recommend all members have at least one copy for their library due to the very recent changes in the Library System service standards.  The books are also available to ILA members for $25/copy and $50/copy for nonmembers.

New Delivery Customer Ticketing Software

IHLS delivery staff have been testing our new customer ticketing software and are now at the stage where we feel we can release it to everyone.  We ask that you please be patient! We are confident that any “bugs” will be worked out, as our members begin to utilize the software.
