Can I order a book from another library?

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is offered to any library user with a current library card in good standing with the MCPL. The user should have no outstanding charges or overdue materials of any kind. The loan period for ILL materials is set by the lending library.

MCPL does not charge for this service, but the lending library may; if so, the charge will be passed on to the user. If loss or damage occurs while the item is in the user’s possession, the user will be charged replacement fees and/or damage cost as determined by the lending library.

All ILL materials must be checked out by the user. The limit is three ILL items at any one time. ILL Items must be picked up within five (5) business days after the library informs the user that the ILL material has arrived at the MCPL. Disregard of the above rules will result in the termination of a user’s ILL privileges.
