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. This information is being gathered by a survey found at this link http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RYLPJX7. The deadline for completion of the survey is June 15, 2013.
Each public library board is required to take action each year on whether to participate in the non-resident program and to determine the fee for non-resident cards. Additional information on the non-resident fee program can be found on the Illinois State Library website.
