Explore More Illinois: Information for Libraries

Explore More Illinois will make it possible for RAILS member libraries to offer free passes, discounted admission, and other deals from a wide variety of Illinois cultural attractions to library cardholders.

This program will be provided as a service to our member libraries, and there will be no cost for RAILS libraries to participate. Details about joining Explore More Illinois will be available soon.

Explore More Illinois is a new program developed and managed by RAILS. It is separate and distinct from the Museum Adventure Pass administered by Libraries First.

How it will work

Cardholders will reserve all passes/discounts online. Libraries will not need to manage and administer physical passes.

This video from our service provider Quipu Group demonstrates how the pass program will work for library cardholders.
