FY2017 Delivery Changes Coming

 

You may have heard about the exciting changes coming in delivery! The end result of these changes will be more service for you, our member. I wanted to provide you an overview of what is happening and a general timeline. There are a couple of external factors that are driving IHLS to re-evaluate and modify our delivery service.

IHLS Funding News!

Earlier this month IHLS received $626,746 of its FY2016 Area and Per Capita Grant Funding. This first payment brings us to about 31% of the total $1,989,670.48 allocation for FY2016. As a reminder, in FY2016 our System Area and Per Capita funding was reduced to 58% due to the state budget crisis. 
 
Many thanks to Anne Craig (Director, Illinois State Library) and Jesse White (Illinois Secretary of State and State Librarian) for their continued support.
