How to get Books via the InterLibrary Loan Service

Submitted by Alexandria Ducksworth

Not finding the books you need in the GCPL catalog? Try requesting them through our InterLibrary Loan (ILL) service!

When you submit an ILL request form, GCPL contacts another library willing to lend your book. It can be a library from another city, county, or state. Plus, the service is free!

For a request, fill out the ILL form with the following information:

-First and last name
-Your library account number
-The book title
-Book author
-ISBN
-The publication year

You can request up to five ILLs at a time. Waiting period for materials can go up to six weeks. Requested items do not include CDs, VHS, DVDS, or audiobooks.

If you would like an extended due date for your ILLs, email InterlibraryLoan@gwinnettpl.org at least five days before the loan due date.
