Interlibrary Loan Services @ Your Library
The Public Library of Enid and Garfield County provides access to materials not owned by this library, but available at other libraries, through the Interlibrary Loan Service. We request that people limit interlibrary loan requests to no more than ten items at any one time. Staff reserve the right to further limit the number of loans each patron may have. Most interlibrary loans take about one to three weeks to arrive after the request is made. The Library will notify the person upon receipt of the requested materials.
