Interlibrary loan

We hope you find what you need in our collection! However, if you wish to order a book from another library, we may be able to help you with our interlibrary loan service.  Simply come by the library to fill out an interlibrary loan request form.

We will make every attempt to find the requested item and only pass along to you the charge for shipping the item.

The loan period of an item is determined by the lending library.  We appreciate the prompt return of all interlibrary loan items to ensure we remain in good standing with the lending libraries.
