Interlibrary Loan

Our library is part of a network of participating libraries throughout the state and nation that are willing to loan out materials to other libraries. We buy the books and materials that we think are most wanted by our community. Because of limited resources and space we can't buy everything published, but can usually get it from another library.

If we do not have the book, CD, or DVD that you are looking for ask a staff member to request from another library.

  • There is no charge for this service. Fill out an ILL form at the Circulation Desk.
  • Most items are delivered to our library within 2 weeks.
  • Materials check out for approximately 4 weeks. Staff will inform you of date due when picked up. Renewals are at the discretion of the lending library.
  • All registered patrons in good standing with the Oelwein Public Library may use this service.
