This is the 8th official day of the Illinois Heartland Library System, and it has been a busy week. The first meeting of the IHLS Board was held on July 5, 2011. Congratulations to Karen Bounds - President, Joan Rhoades - Vice President, Janet Hasten - Secretary, and Nina Wunderlich - Treasurer who were elected to these offices. The 15-member IHLS board will meet again on July 26, 4:30 pm, at the Carterville location, and we encourage you to attend. At the July 5 board meeting resolutions for several policies, previously passed by the Transition Board, were approved by the new Board. There is much work to be done by the new Board of Directors who are wholly committed to supporting resource-sharing and membership involvement.
