Public Library FOIL


       

 


Welcome to ILF!

Welcome to the Indiana Library Federation, one of the largest library associations in the United States and holds one of the largest state library conventions in the country. The mission of ILF is to foster the professional growth of its members and to promote all types of libraries in Indiana. Membership is essential to our success in advocating for libraries. There are many benefits to ILF membership, including important networking opportunities, supportive work on behalf of libraries in the legislative arena, ability to receive reduced rates to ILF's outstanding conferences which provide valuable continuing education credits and more. 

If you are not a member, we hope that you will peruse our website and talk with members to learn more about ILF. Please consider joining and adding your voice in support of libraries in Indiana. Questions? E-mail askus@ilfonline.org.

Ch-ch-ch-changes.  We want to hear from you!

As we engage members in conversation about the future for ILF, we aim to share internal updates and important information.
