Interlibrary Loan

Library StacksInterlibrary Loan AvailableInterlibrary Loan is a service provided to residents of the town of Monticello and Union and Jackson Townships. Reciprocal & P.L.A.C. card holders must make interlibrary loan requests through their Home Library (the library in the township where they reside).

How Does it Work?

Adults and children may request materials not available in the Monticello-Union Township Public Library collection from other libraries.

Request forms are available at the Circulation/reference desk. Or call (574)583-2665.

It generally takes 10 days to 2 weeks to receive requested materials. It can however take longer depending on how many libraries have to be searched. Other White County libraries are searched first and if not found they are placed on a worldwide interlibrary loan database.

Interlibrary Loan materials generally may not be renewed. Libraries have different loan periods and travel time to and from make it nearly impossible to request longer loan periods. If you find you need additional time please contact the Interlibrary Loan Librarian, before your due date, at (574) 583-2665 to see if a renewal may be granted.

This service is facilitated and funded by the Indiana State Library.
