Can I borrow items from other libraries?
Books and other materials not available at this library may be borrowed from other libraries across the country through the Interlibrary Loan System (ILL).

If you have a current library card, simply log in to your library account and scroll down till you see the heading "Is the library missing something?" Please choose "Yes" when asked if it's ok to borrow from another library, as a small postage fee applies. Enter as much information as you can about the item (author, title, format, fiction or nonfiction, part of a series, etc.). You can request three ILLs simultaneously.

If you would like assistance with an ILL request, please stop by the Help Desk.
