Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan services for Iowa libraries

A local library buys the books and materials most wanted by its community. Because of limited resources and space, a single library cannot buy all published items, but can often borrow what its customer wants from another library, through interlibrary loan.  Iowa libraries are part of a vast network of participating libraries that are willing to loan materials to other libraries.

Iowa libraries can use the SILO Locator and interlibrary loan system, without charge, to borrow books from other participating in-state libraries.

Please contact the Agency Library and we will help you look for a book on I.L.L. if needed.
