Interlibrary Loan

Please Note:

Beginning May 1st, 2018, all Interlibrary Loan items will be held for only 7 days after arrival.

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.

Interlibrary Loan allows both public and academic libraries to share their circulating collections. The Lexington Public Library has access to over 4,000 participating libraries from which to borrow books. Many of these participating libraries borrow books from us as well.
