Interlibrary Loan

Can't find the book you are looking for here at the Akron Public Library?

Many times we are able to request the book(s) you are looking for from a different library in Iowa and have it in our library within a week or two.

Simply stop in or call and talk to a librarian about requesting an interlibrary loan! If you would like to search for it before you talk with us, simply click here.

When you are finished reading your interlibrary loan, simply return the book to us and we will return it to the lending library. How easy!

With our new courier service provided to us by the State Library of Iowa, we are no longer asking for fees to get your book shipped to our library! Yep, you read that right. It is FREE to request an interlibrary loan.
(Shipping charges may apply if shipped from a college/university.)
