Borrow from another library

Our library is connected to other libraries throughout the state and nation. If you can't find an item in this library, ask library staff to help you get it from another library.

Our library buys books and materials that we think are most wanted by our community.  Because of limited resources and space we can't buy everything that is published, but we can usually borrow it from another library.  This is called inter-library loan.  Our library is part of a vast network of participating libraries that are willing to loan out materials to other libraries.

If we don't have the book, CD, DVD, video or magazine that you are looking for, ask the staff to get if for you from another library.  There is a small charge to help cover the cost of postage.  Most of the items are delivered to our library in 4-7 days.  The loan periods vary, but you are able to keep most items for 3-4 weeks.  The staff will inform you of the loan period when you pick up the item.
