Interlibrary Loan

We are happy to help you find items that may not be in our own library collections.

Families may borrow up to 4 items per month before incurring postage fees.

You may either ask a librarian to find something for you, OR you can make your own account on the website we use and we will make sure your item gets to you.

You will need to already have a library card in order to make an Interlibrary Loan Account on the website.
