Per the American Librarian Association: Libraries of all types strengthen their communities through education, lifelong learning, and a wealth of public services. No longer just a place for books, libraries have expanded beyond their traditional roles and provide more opportunities for community engagement and the delivery of new services that connect closely with their community’s needs. Libraries are at the heart of our cities, towns, schools, and campuses—a resource for all community members to find what they need to help improve their quality of life.

What is Interlibrary Loan:
Interlibrary Loan is the process by which the library will request materials not available in our own collection. Items are delivered to the library and you can pick them up and check them out just like any other library item. Items are usually free.
Why you should care:
This means that you can get just about any item you want, from any library, without having to try to find it yourself, for free.
The service includes books, journal articles, DVDs, videos, and other materials.
Plan ahead–sometimes items can come quickly, but giving a week to 10 days for the item is a good rule of thumb.
Need to use it? You can find the policies and form here.
For questions, contact Armando Trejo, Archives/Interlibrary Loan Librarian at (847) 214-7141.
