Interlibrary Loan

Can't find a title you want?

The state of Iowa offers a free inter-library loan service that allows libraries to borrow books from any participating library in the state. 

How it works:

  • Ask at the circulation desk for an interlibrary loan request (ILL).
  • A request form will be completed by library staff.
  • We will notify the patron by telephone when the items are received or when the library has received a notification that the materials are unavailable.


  • Materials requested via ILL must be at least 6 months old
  • Patrons can check out items for two weeks.  If item needs to be renewed we will have to get permission from the lending library.
