Illinois Library Delivery Service Map Illinois State Library

Background and History

The interactive delivery map was created to provide a graphic representation of the structure of the physical delivery of library materials in support of resource sharing in Illinois. Each library in Illinois that receives delivery is identified by a colored flag that denotes the frequency of delivery at that location. The data for the map were drawn from the L2 Library Directory and Learning Calendar. The data in the statewide delivery map are from January 2016.

Over 520 libraries participate in Community Delivery Partnerships (CDP). The flag on the map indicates where a delivery is actually made and how often. If you click on the flag of a library that acts as the host for a CDP, all of the libraries that receive their delivery at that location will be listed in the pop-up box. For example, if you click on the red flag (5 day delivery) for the Mason City Public Library District, you will see that the Illini Central CUSD #189 is a delivery partner. The delivery partners receive the same delivery frequency as the host. View Libraries Participating in CDPs.
