All staff from all RAILS libraries are encouraged to attend! You’ll hear the latest news about RAILS' revised strategic plan, membership standards, partnership grants available to RAILS libraries, and Find More Illinois.

Sharon Ruda, Director of the Illinois State Library’s Talking Book and Braille Service, will talk about services available to any Illinois resident who is unable to read standard print due to a visual or physical disability, and how your library can take advantage of this program.

Jason Erber from Riverwood Elementary School will talk about the school’s partnership with McHenry Public Library District to purchase and implement a Walking Classroom and the impact of this program on students. This project was funded by a RAILS Multitype Collaborative Grant. Attendees will also be invited to share the latest news from their libraries as well as interesting things they learned at the Association for Rural and Small Libraries, Health Science Librarians of Illinois, Illinois Library Association, and other recent library conferences.
