Interlibrary Loan

Borrow from another library


Our library is connected to other libraries throughout the state and nation. If you can't find an item in this library, ask library staff to help you get it from another library.


The Lenox Public Library cannot possibly have every book that someone might want to read or use, so the service of inter-library loan is available.  This means that one library lends a book to another library for a short period of time.
