The Library also includes Illinois Libraries Community Collections. Readers can browse community publishing and archiving projects, such as music, local history, memory projects, art, photography, and more.

Because the Library authenticates by the user's location, visiting the website or opening the app gives you access to e-books without needing to enter a library card number or other login. Unlimited checkouts and no return periods give readers instant access to all titles all the time.

Readers also may create an account profile and login. An account allows access to the Library while outside of Illinois, as well as the ability to download content for offline reading and to add bookmarks and notes.
