Changes to Non-Resident Library Fees

On August 14, 2018, the Illinois General Assembly enacted P.A. 100-0875, which amends both the Illinois Local Library Act and the Public Library District Act of 1991.

Under the new law, a nonresident fee will not be applied to a nonresident who owns or leases property that is taxed for library service. Prior to the enactment of this law the nonresident fee was only waived for the actual owner of the taxable property instead of those who also lease property. The nonresident owner or leaseholder must present either the most recent tax bill for the property or a copy of the commercial lease.

The law also removes the limit of nonresident library privileges to only one nonresident for each parcel of taxable property. Now, multiple nonresident owners or lessors at a single property are able to use library services.

This Act took effect immediately upon becoming law on August 14, 2018.
