Reaching Across Illinois Library System

During the first half of the 2010 calendar year, representatives of the Alliance, DuPage, Metropolitan, North Suburban, and Prairie Area library systems met to explore ways to mitigate the serious fiscal situation for the state-funded systems and to safeguard services to the Illinois library community.
