Information for Libraries

Explore More Illinois makes it possible for member libraries to offer free passes, discounted admission, and other deals from a wide variety of Illinois cultural attractions to library cardholders.

This program will be provided as a service to all Illinois public libraries, and there is no cost for libraries to particpate. RAILS covers the yearly software platform fee for all libraries.

Explore More Illinois is separate and distinct from the Museum Adventure Pass administered by Libraries First. Libraries can particpate in both programs.

We are always looking for new attractions and invite Illinois libraries to suggest new additions for Explore More Illinois. Some ideas include:

  • Museums
  • Performing arts groups, including community theaters and orchestras
  • College and minor league sports teams
  • Zoos
  • Park districts
  • Historic homes
