Interlibrary loan is available to Glen Ellyn Public Library cardholders if the material needed is not available in the library. The library adheres to the State of Illinois Interlibrary Loan Code and therefore cannot request to borrow items of a type that we would not lend to another library.
Items not available through interlibrary loan will be considered for purchase for the library’s collection if they meet established criteria. It is suggested that visitors place no more than 10 requests at a time.
Some direct costs for interlibrary loan, such as genealogical microfilm lending fees, will be passed on to the cardholder, with their prior consent. Cardholders will also pay a nominal fee for photocopies of articles obtained for them from other libraries.
