Our library does provide an inter-library loan service. Requests are forwarded to the Enoch Pratt Library in Baltimore. They research library catalogs and then send the request to a third library. Response time depends upon many factors, but now averages a couple of months. Shipping costs $3 per item.

Because the Montgomery County and PG Library systems are bigger organizations, and are part of the Maryland Inter-library Loan Office network, we suggest that you may get a quicker response if you try them first.

If you do want to make an Inter-library loan request through our library, please come and fill out a special blue card we keep at the desk. You need to include as much information as you can find, at least author and title. And be sure to fill in your address on the reverse side of the card.
