Update Your Nonresident Card Info in L2

For all RAILS Public Libraries --

We've moved our form for updating nonresident-card data to the Library Learning (L2) directory.

Public libraries should now report your nonresident card participation and fees to RAILS via the L2 website, . The most recent information we've received is shown in your library's L2 profile.

Library directors and other designated staff can update your nonresident-card information by logging into L2, going to your library's profile, and clicking the "Edit nonresident card status" link in the sidebar.

Your board is required by Illinois law to decide annually whether the library will participate in the state's nonresident fee program. Please confirm that your library's information is up to date in L2.  

For more information about the Illinois nonresident card program, including a list of all RAILS libraries' fees, visit .

If you have questions about nonresident cards, please contact Amanda Musacchio, 630.734.5118 or amanda [dot] musacchio [at] railslibraries [dot] info .
