Interlibrary Loans

Canít find what youíre looking for? For items not located within our library system, we will try to obtain the material from another library. Through our inter-library loan service you have access to millions of Books!

The staff will do their best to obtain the item. Loan periods for such items are set by the lending library, and all charges are the responsibility of the borrower. In some cases a small fee will apply (you will be notified prior to receiving the material). Patrons will be notified by phone when the material arrives; items will be held for one week. Loan periods will vary depending on the source library. If a book is damaged or lost the patron will be charged the rate of replacement as per the leading library's policy. Interloan privileges can be limited or revoked at our discretion.
