Interlibrary Loan

Can't find a book? We can get it for you from another library through Interlibrary Loan if your library card is in good standing. Any item published more than 6 months ago and not owned by our libraries may be requested through interlibrary loan. (Items that have been released for less than 6 months can not be requested through interlibrary loan because they are deemed "too new" to loan.) The item will be sent to your home library for you to borrow. Requests for items should be made several weeks before they are needed. If you have any questions, please contact us at 814-355-1516.
