Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan borrowing service provides Indian Trails Library District cardholders in good standing access to materials from other libraries within the United States. Please read the Indian Trails Interlibrary Loan Policy for more information.

Interlibrary loan borrowing is free unless the supplying library charges a fee.

We request materials from libraries that lend for free. However, some items are available only from a library that charges a fee. If you are willing to pay a fee for a specific item, please indicate the maximum amount on your request. Replacement cost and processing fees incurred as a result of loss or damage are the responsibility of the member who checks out the item.

What May Be Borrowed:

All types of materials may be borrowed through Interlibrary Loan with the exception of video games, Playaway Views, e-books, e-audiobooks, e-readers, reference materials and new items (owned less than 6 months). Article reprint requests may be placed at any service desk.
