Interlibrary Loan (or ILL, for short) is a service for patrons of APLD to borrow books, videos, DVDs, or sound recordings that are owned by another library system. APLD offers this service because it isn’t always possible to acquire an item for our permanent collection. However, through ILL the library is able to provide you with a much greater amount of material.
To make an ILL request you will need:
A library membership in good standing
All pertinent information about the item you’re requesting
- Your current contact information
Most items will require 10 business days to receive and the circulation period is set by the lending library. Renewing items is not always possible, but in most cases one renewal is allowed by the lender upon request.
To request materials through Interlibrary Loan, use the form below, contact the library, or inquire in person at a circulation desk.
