Request an Interlibrary Loan

Didn't find it at CPL? Request an interlibrary loan to borrow a title from another library system.

  • Pending interlibrary loan requests will appear in your account within two business days. (Requests for microfilm, photocopies or in-library use only items will not appear in your account. To check the status of those requests, please call Interlibrary Loan at (312) 747-4344 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.)
  • Each interlibrary loan request counts as a hold. You may have up to eight holds "not ready" or "paused." This does not include hold requests that are "in transit" or "ready for pickup."
  • Additional questions? Check the Interlibrary Loan FAQs or call Interlibrary Loan at (312) 747-4344 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
