Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services

Welcome to the Interlibrary Loan service of the Marion & Ed Hughes Public Library. Please take a moment to read this page before proceeding with your request. There are two ways to place an Interlibrary Loan. You can call or come into the library for staff assistance in placing an ILL request. You can also use the new system which allows customers to place their own requests for ILLs by using the search box below.

Can't find the item you want in your local catalog? Try our new Interlibrary Loan request process.

Interlibrary Loan service is available to those customers that have a current Library card. Your request will be accepted unless there is a problem with your library account as indicated in the following examples:

Items owned by Marion & Ed Hughes Public Library, even if they are for reference only, may not be requested using this service and any requests placed for such items will be cancelled. Please check the Library catalog before requesting materials through Interlibrary Loan.

Please note that Interlibrary Loan materials may take two to six weeks to arrive. You must present your library card in order to pick up Interlibrary Loan materials.

If you have questions about your ILL request, please contact your local library at (409) 722-1255
