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.

Can't find what you're looking for on our bookshelf?  Don't worry, we'll find it for you!

The library will obtain materials which are not currently owned by the library, through the SILO program at the State Library.  There is no fee to the patron for using this service.  Patrons simply request the item through the library staff, who will then request the item through the SILO website.  Once the item has arrived at the library, the patron will be called and allowed to check out the item for a three-week loan period.  It's as simple as that!
