PART 3050 PUBLIC LIBRARY NON-RESIDENT SERVICES
SECTION 3050.20 PUBLIC LIBRARY RESPONSIBILITIES
Section 3050.20 Public Library Responsibilities
a) The public library board of trustees shall annually take action to decide whether to issue non-resident library cards during the ensuing 12 months. At that time, the non-resident library card fee formula and fee, if applicable, to be used will be determined and adopted.
b) The public library board of trustees shall notify the regional library system within 30 days of the action taken and effective dates and fee formula as determined in this Part.
c) The participating public library shall continue to honor the non-resident library cards issued by the library for the full term of purchase.
d) Participating public libraries shall cooperate with other participating area public libraries and the regional library system and adjacent regional library systems to determine the appropriate non-resident service areas as stated in Section 3050.25 of this Part.
e) Nothing in this Part requires a public library to participate in the non-resident library card reciprocal borrowing program of a regional library system. Non-participation in the non-resident library card program does not preclude a public library from applying for and receiving grant funds from the Illinois State Library as long as the public library complies with requirements of the specific grant program.
