Quarterly update session featuring the latest news from RAILS. Members will also have an opportunity to share what is going on at their libraries. All are welcome!

Type:   Meeting

You’ll hear the latest news on RAILS efforts to update our strategic plan, our new system membership standards, and Find More Illinois, our overlay project.

You’ll also hear from members about two projects that were awarded RAILS Multitype Collaborative grants, including a public/school library collaboration to establish a family literacy program for Latino families and a public/school library “Barbers Love Books” program. You will also learn how your library can take advantage of our multitype grants.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to share what is happening at their libraries.
You can attend at an available RAILS videoconference location to network with other attendees.

You can also participate via streaming video (register for RAILS Live). The update will also be recorded for viewing at a later date.

Those participating via RAILS Live can provide feedback via the chat window on the right side of the screen at any time during the session.

Note: If you experience problems with the RAILS Live video stream (freezing, stuttering, etc.), hover over the video player, click the "HD" icon, and select a lower resolution.

This event is sponsored by Reaching Across Illinois Library System.

Last day to cancel registrations is: 4/11/2018
