  Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If we don’t have it, we will try to get it for you.

Materials not owned by St. Charles City-County Library (SCCCLD) may be borrowed from other libraries in the United States. Use the myLibrary Catalog to search for your item. If it is not available, adjust the Select Resources to request an ILL through WorldCat Discovery. For more information or to use step-by-step instructions to request materials through an ILL, please click here.

ILL service is available to customers age 16 and older who possess a valid library card in good standing. (Card must be presented at both time of request and time of checkout.) Children and teen requests may be submitted by a parent or guardian on behalf of the child. Failure to pick up three requests in any three year period will result in a suspension of ILL privileges. Click here for ILL policy.

You will receive notification when your request is ready for checkout.
