Availability
Is there a book you want to read, but we don't have it? Maybe we can get it for you, from another library.
Almost any book, whether hardback or paperback, is eligible for interlibrary loan if it was published at least six months ago. (Newer books are often not available.)
Look Here First
The Galion Public Library is part of the Consortium of Ohio Libraries. If you can find something in the COOL catalog, chances are placing a hold on it will result in a copy being sent to your home library for you to check out.
Beyond COOL
[SEO logo] If our own consortium doesn't have it, we may be able to borrow a copy from SEO. When we submit your request to a library staff member, it goes to SEO, which looks for a library among their members that has the book available. If they find one, they send the book to us, and we call you, and you can come in and pick it up and keep it for up to two weeks.
Books are easiest to identify if you know both the author and the title, but we'll always do our best.
Movies, Music, and More
Sometimes non-book materials are available for interlibrary loan, as well. If there is an item you would like to check out, and we don't have it, speak with our staff about the interlibrary loan service. We do ask that patrons requesting video materials on interlibrary loan provide a telephone number where we can contact them. Unfortunately, because of the short loan times on videos, we cannot get them on interlibrary loan for patrons with no contact phone number.
