RAILS Resource Sharing Policy

RAILS is funded by an annual grant from the Illinois State Library.

CCS Library Consortium
The Library is also a Member of the CCS Consortium, a group of 24 public libraries that share the cost and maintenance of an online catalog and circulation system. This means that you can easily search the holdings of all 24 libraries and place holds on items that the Park Ridge Public Library does not own.
