Interlibrary loan requests are accepted from Glenside Library card holders only. Patrons are limited to five active requests at any one time. While we do our best to accommodate all requests, it is unlikely that we will be able to borrow video games or new materials from other libraries. Most interlibrary loans are available within a week, but may take longer depending on the availability and the willingness of libraries to lend a particular item.

Borrow from Other Libraries (Interlibrary Loan)

Though we are member of a network of 100 libraries throughout the Chicagoland areas, with a combined 10 million-item collection, we couldn’t possibly own every book ever written or movie made. If we do not own an item you desire, we can extend our search outside of our network to borrow from other libraries in Illinois, and even across the country.
