New Benefit for ILA Institutional Members

Dear ILA Institutional Member:

We are excited to offer you once again a benefit for you as an institutional member of ILA! As most of you know, ILA developed a summer reading program more than 35 years ago known as iREAD®. In 2020 ILA started offering a complimentary downloadable version of the program’s Resource Guide to ILA's Institutional Members to use when planning summer reading and beyond. We are extending this offer to our Institutional Members once again for the 2023 summer reading program.

The 2023 iREAD Resource Guide with the theme Find Your Voice! will be availble in November. 

To claim your complimentary 2023 iREAD® Resource Guide download, please email iREAD® customer service at Include your library name and your request to receive the download.

To take advantage of this benefit, the library membership needs to be in good standing and only one complimentary download can be issued per library. Additional print or flash drive versions are available for purchase. There are no time limits on use of iREAD® resources and graphics, and the download may be shared among library staff and buildings.

Developed by librarians for librarians, iREAD® is a self-supporting effort developed by ILA and every purchase helps to promote and support the great work of Illinois libraries.

Thank you!
