Interlibrary Loan

How do I make a request for an item the library does not own?

  • First, check our online catalog to make sure that the Library District doesn't already own the item you need.
  • If you can't find it in the search results in our online catalog, click the Prospector link in the upper right-hand corner of the search results box to see if you can borrow from another local library.
  • For magazine articles, click the articles tab in the online catalog or check our research databases to see if we have the full-text article you need.
  • Fill out the Suggest a Purchase/Interlibrary Loan form and we'll try and find it for you! You will need your library card account info to log in.
