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.

We will search for the item and let you know when it arrives at our library.  Generally speaking you may keep the item from 2-4 weeks. As long as this service is not abused, there is no fee for it although a donation is appreciated to help defray the cost of postage. This is a great way for Iowa’s libraries to share their resources and make many more materials available to our patrons. If this service is something that you would like to take advantage of please contact us. The interlibrary loan program helps the library meet the needs of patrons. 

This resource is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by State Library of Iowa.
