IHLS is Moving Forward with a New Look

Big news! Illinois Heartland Library System (IHLS) is embarking on our seventh year of operations. In the last few years we have grown and come together as an organization. This is the perfect time to evaluate our organization’s brand and logo to ensure it conveys who we are today and how we are moving forward in the future. We are pleased to announce that today we are releasing an updated brand identity, which includes a new logo, colors, and font as part of the ongoing evolution of Illinois Heartland Library System.

Complete Non-Resident Fee Survey by June 30

IHLS is required to maintain a list on the IHLS website of non-resident program information from IHLS public libraries and to indicate whether or not a library participates in the non-resident fee program and what that fee is. Each year IHLS asks all IHLS public libraries for this information.

 

More information and a link to the survey can be found on the IHLS website: http://illinoisheartland.org/?q=members/non-resident-fee.

 

Last day of Delivery for School Year 2016-17

The end of the school year is fast approaching.  The System’s courier delivery service to schools for this school year will end on Friday, May 19, 2017.  The first day of delivery for the 2017-18 school year will be the week of August 21, 2017.  If your school needs to adjust either of these dates, please contact your hub manager to work out a schedule that will work more efficiently for you.  I know some of the managers have already spoken to a few of you and your end date for this year, has been changed.
