Borrow from another library using ILL: Inter-Library Loans
The Library recognizes that no single library can meet all the demands of its community. For this reason, interlibrary loan service is available to patrons who need additional resource materials. Interlibrary loan forms are available at the Circulation Desk.
Requests are available to all cardholders of the Desert Foothills Library. Upon receipt of the material, patrons will have two weeks to use the materials. Materials may not be renewed unless special arrangements are made with the Library Director. Materials requested via interlibrary loan may take several weeks to arrive. This is due to the fact that materials are borrowed from libraries across the country and shipping takes time. Typically, lending libraries will not lend titles that have been published within the last six months or year. Patrons will be notified if a request cannot be filled by a lending library.
Interlibrary loan is free of charge to members of the Library Association. Cardholders will be required to pay any postage arising from the ILL.
Teachers … Get More With an Educator’s Card
Teachers with an educator’s ID as well as homeschooling parents and caregivers are eligible to open an Educator Library Card.
This card will allow you to check out up to 50 items, place items on hold, and allow fine forgiveness for items used in the classroom or for educational purposes.
Please see a librarian or staff member at the library to open an Educator Library Card.
