Annual Library Certification Illinois State Library


In compliance with Illinois statutes and administrative rules, annual certification is required of all library system members in order to retain system membership and eligibility for grants administered by the Illinois State Library [23 Ill. Adm. Code 3030.200]. Examples of Illinois State Library grants include public and school library per capita grants, and public library construction grants.

Completion of the ILLINET ILL & RB Statistical Survey is a prerequisite of certification [23III. Adm. Code 3030.200 20)0].

Following certification, library system boards take action to remove non-compliant or non-certifying libraries from system membership. Notification of this action is then forwarded to the Illinois State Library for final approval.
