Interlibrary Loan


If we don't have the book you want, we can usually get it for you from another library through Interlibrary Loan or through purchasing it for our own library. Depending on availability, it takes an average of two weeks to get a book for you to borrow. To take advantage of this service, you must have a valid library card. Contact the Library at 970-565-8117 with questions.
