Q. How do I request a book using your Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service?


With our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service you may borrow books that are not in the GCPL collection.

  • Before requesting an ILL, we ask you to please confirm that GCPL does not already own the title. Simply search the catalog using:
    • title
    • keyword
    • series
    • author
    • subject
  • ILL is available for:
    • Print materials published more than 12 months ago
    • Microform, which must be used at the Collins Hill branch
  • We will notify you:
    • When the title arrives at your selected pick-up branch location, or
    • If we are unable to fill the request
  • It may take 4 - 8 weeks for your ILL title to arrive. Once it does, you have 10 days to pick it up.
  • ILL cost is $2.00 per title per filled request, due when you pick up the item. Please note: the fee is due regardless of whether the ILL is picked up.
