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 the 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 get 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 it for you from another library. There is no charge for this service. Most of the items are delivered to our library in 7-14 days. The loan periods vary, but you are able to keep most items at least 2 weeks.  The staff will inform you of the loan period when you pick up the item.

Our library uses SILO Interlibrary loan to borrow items from other Iowa libraries and OCLC Interlibrary loan to borrow items from libraries around the United States and other countries.
