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.

The interlibrary loan program helps the library meet the needs of patrons. Filling out the peach form at the circulation desk, although not required, will expedite the process.  This form includes your name and phone number and the name of the book and author that you are looking for.   You may also request an item by calling the library at 319-347-2432.  We will search for the item and let you know when it arrives at our library.  Generally speaking you may keep the item from 2-4 weeks. As long as this service is not abused, there is no fee for it although a donation is appreciated to help defray the cost of postage. This is a great way for Iowa’s libraries to share their resources and make many more materials available to our patrons. If this service is something that you would like to take advantage of please contact us.
