Recently, the Library was awarded a RAILS LLSAP membership Grant. RAILS, also known as Reaching Across Illinois Library System, awards grants each year to public libraries in Illinois. This specific grant was intended to increase membership in RAILS Local Library System Automation Programs by funding start up costs for any RAILS member library that isn't currently an LLSAP member, or would like to upgrade its union list membership.
