IHLS Emergency / Weather Closings
IHLS will post route cancellations and hub closings on the IHLS website's front page and send a text alert (see below) for each hub that is closing.
IHLS Text Messaging System
To sign up for the service, you simply need to send a text to 84483 with one of the following keywords:
- Champaign (for the Champaign hub notifications)
- Carbondale (for the Carbondale hub notifications)
- Edwardsville (for the Edwardsville hub notifications)
If we have a system wide notification, we will send it out to all of the hub locations. Alternatively, you may simply open your browser and go to www.rainedout.net. Once there, search for our organization (Illinois Heartland Library System) and then you are able to sign up. You may sign up for text alerts and/or email alerts. There is no cost to sign up, but your regular service provider message rates do apply.
That’s it! We promise not to inundate you with frivolous texts, just closings/delays. We are hoping to use this to keep you informed along with, of course, posting closings/delays on the website.
