IHLS has made a group purchase of 250 copies of Serving Our Public 4.0: Standards for Illinois Public Libraries.


Serving Our Public 4.0: Standards for Illinois Public Libraries

This updated edition contains everything your library needs to complete applications for state grant programs, and is an important guide for trustees and library boards. It has 13 chapters, including new ones for Youth and Young Adult Services, Building Infrastructure and Maintenance, and Illinois Public Library Resource Sharing Responsibility, and three new appendices. The new edition includes a paperback and flash drive.



The books are available to IHLS members for $27.50/copy. To offer these savings to our members, we made a bulk purchase. IHLS has a limited supply, and copies will be available to IHLS member libraries on a first-come, first-served basis. Once all of our copies are gone, you may purchase a copy from ILA at $30 (member rate) or $50 (non-member rate).
