Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is a system where we will request books, articles, and other library materials not available in our library. Materials include; videos, DVD’s, music items, and videogames. A request form is available at Ellinwood School/Community Library for you to complete. The request will then be entered into the software by our staff. Your materials may take 1-3 weeks to arrive determined by the response of the lending library and shipping. Your checkout time is usually 3-4 weeks, depending on the material.
