How do I get a book that WCPL doesn't own?
Last Updated: May 22, 2023 Views: 5619

If WCPL does not own a title that you want to read, you may submit a Materials Request through our catalog.

Log in to your account, and then choose Materials Request under the My Account options.

All purchase suggestions are reviewed by the Collection Development staff; decisions are based on our collection development guidelines and availability. You can track your requests in the catalog through My Account -> Materials Requests.

You can request some items through Interlibrary Loan (ILL):

  • Print books
  • Books on CD
  • Microfilm
  • Journal articles

Interlibrary Loan items usually arrive within 2 to 6 weeks. You may use ILL as long as you don't have fines over $10 or any lost items on your account.

Contact your local library for more information.
