Please Note: Interlibrary Loan Service is suspended until further notice.

Please return interlibrary loan items using the return slots at any of our locations.

As part of continued improvements to our systems and services, you will now use your library card number and PIN to access Interlibrary Loan the same way you access your library card account and library databases.



The Lexington Public Library offers an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service which allows cardholders to borrow books and magazine articles we do not own and cannot purchase. The Lexington Public Library also lends our books to libraries both inside and outside the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
