Interlibrary Loan

If we don't have an item in our collection, a library staff member would be happy to make a request via MeLCat -- our interlibrary loan service.

MeLCat is an online statewide catalog and delivery service that allows patrons of hundreds participating Michigan libraries to borrow materials - books, movies, CDs and more - from all over the state and have them delivered to their home library.

If you're looking for help on searching MeLCat, feel free to ask a library staff member or visit the MeLCat help page.
