Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service that allows library users access to books and
periodical articles not available in the library system. We borrow these items for
you from other libraries with which we have lending/borrowing agreements. To be eligible to receive ILL materials you must have an up-to-date library card, no fines above $1.00 and no outstanding overdue item(s). We borrow the items from other participating libraries at no cost
Patrons are limited to 3 active requests, including items checked out or in process and count as part of your 20 book check out limit. Most requests are filled in approximately 2 to 3 weeks, however, some items may take longer and some titles may be unavailable. Staff will notify you by your preferred contact method when you item is ready to be picked up or if it is not available. Loan periods for ILL materials vary and are set by the lending library. Please contact the ILL Department at (205) 345-5820 or email@example.com for renewals, requests and/or questions.
If you email your request be sure to include your library card number, book title, book author, and any other specific information. Please be very specific about periodical articles. You will be notified by the email address you use unless you request a different means of correspondence.
