Quarterly count November 17-21

Please fill out a form, sent to each library last week, for each day during the week of November 17-21. Place the completed form on top of items inside one of your outgoing tubs/bags each day. To make it easier on your staff, you will only need one form for each day, not one for each tub like last count.

Your assistance with this is huge and greatly appreciated!

No delivery notifications

Delivery runs on two IHLS holidays, President's Day and Veteran's day. It is imperative that you let your hub Operation Manager know if you DO NOT want delivery these days or any other day. Routes are planned based on this information. 

Public libraries it is also important for you to let us know when you DO NOT want delivery. Please note if we have access via a key or an alarm code, unless otherwise notified, we will deliver on your regularly scheduled delivery day even if you are closed.



Search for your route by entering your library name followed by the word delivery in the

"Search the IHLS Website" box on the right. Example:  Glen Carbon delivery

Your search will turn up several results. One of the results will be your hub's delivery on that and it will take you to your route.

About IHLS Delivery:

IHLS provides delivery of library materials to member libraries from three delivery hubs, primarily based upon the existing LLSAP coverage areas. The delivery system and routes are continually evaluated to determine the most efficient methods of delivery to system members.

A presentation on delivery in IHLS was presented to the IHLS board at the August 2011 board meeting. You can view that presentation here.

Refer to this page for information on what items may be sent through System delivery.
