Public Library Nonresident Card Participation

The board of each public library in RAILS is required by Illinois law to decide annually whether your library will participate in the state's nonresident fee program, and to inform us about the board's action within 30 days. Nothing in the statute or administrative rules requires a public library to participate in the nonresident library card reciprocal borrowing program of a regional library system.

Library directors and other designated staff can fulfill this requirement by updating your nonresident card participation and fee information in the Library Learning (L2) directory. Once logged into L2, view your library's profile and click the "Edit nonresident card status" link in the right-hand sidebar. You can go directly to your library's L2 profile by clicking your library's name in the list below.

You do not need to send us a copy of your nonresident card resolution or ordinance.

For more information about the Illinois public library nonresident services program, including a series of memoranda that answer questions about specific nonresident issues, see the Illinois State Library's website.

If you have any questions about the action and notification requirements for the nonresident fee program, or if your library is not listed below, please contact Amanda Musacchio.
