Interlibrary Loan

What is Interlibrary Loan?

The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service allows patrons to obtain items not currently held by the McCracken County Public Library by requesting them from other participating libraries.

How to request materials:

Requests for Interlibrary Loan materials may be made in person or by submitting the online form on this page.

Each request must have a library card number, title, author, and type of format (book, CD, video-DVD or VHS, audiocassette, Large Print) desired.

The person picking up these materials must have the library card that is on the request.

ILL materials may not be renewed.

If ILL materials are not picked up, a $5.00 processing fee will be charged.

No more than 5 items may be requested in one week. In special instances, the patron may speak to an Interlibrary Loan staff person about making an exception to this limit.

A library patron may obtain material through the Interlibrary Loan Service if they:

  • Have a valid library card
  • Have no more than $10.00 in fines
