If you need a particular book, or a book about an unusual subject, and we don’t have what you need here in McDonald county, we can borrow a book from another library for you!
The service is called Inter-Library Loan (or just I.L.L. for short), and for a very small postage fee – usually around $1 or $2 per book – we’ll borrow the book from another library that has it available.
Once the book arrives, we’ll notify you, and you can pick it up here at the Pineville Library.
When you are finished with the book (or whenever it comes due) just bring it back to the library and we’ll return the book to the original lending library for you.
And as of November 2010, we’ve just made it even easier and more convenient for you…
You can now place your request online!
- To begin, we highly recommend starting by first searching our County, State, and Worldwide CATALOGS.
- Or, if you know exactly what you are looking for and are certain we do not have it in our collection already, you can proceed directly to our online Inter-Library Loan Request Form.
If this is your first time using Inter-Library Loan,
you are encouraged to ask one of the library staff for assistance.
We are happy to help!
