RAILS E-Resources Programs
eRead Illinois Axis 360 provides affordable access to over 65,000 e-books and e-audiobooks. This shared collection may be a library’s primary e-book collection, or may augment the e-books that a library already offers to its cardholders.
Inkie.org supports local authors with online creation and publishing tools and is available to everyone in Illinois at no charge. Users can design and self-publish their own e-books via Pressbooks. The Inkie.org library includes the Indie Illinois collection of self-published e-books by Illinois authors and RAILS Community Collections, featuring content added by local libraries.
Through RAILS' Explore More Illinois online cultural and recreational pass program, cardholders at participating libraries can take advantage of various discounts at museums, park districts, historical societies, zoos, art centers, and more. There is no charge for public libraries to participate.
