InterLibrary Loan is BACK!
Beginning September 15
We are happy to announce that beginning Tuesday, September 15, we will resume requesting and borrowing books from other New Hampshire libraries, a procedure commonly referred to as Inter-Library Loans, or ILL.

We anticipate that requests will take 2-4 weeks to fill. 

NOTE: At this time, not all libraries have returned to full service, but we will do our best to fulfill your request(s). For newer items, please consider making a "material request": asking the library to purchase your requested item.

Place your inter-library loan request by clicking on the button below and completing the request form (library card number required), or by contacting ILL Librarian Michele - or any library staff member - at 603-886-6030.
