Free Interlibrary Loan Service

The Washington Public Library has upgraded their Interlibrary Loan Service. Effective January 2016, the Library is using the Kansas Library Express Courier Service in connection with their Interlibrary Loan Service. This change means that library card holders in good standing will be able to request a book (up to a limit of four books at one time) without paying a return postage mailing fee. The courier service will stop at the Washington Public Library three days a week.

What is Interlibrary Loan Service? Interlibrary Loan (aka ILL) is a service offered by Washington Public Library to its cardholders. If there are library materials, print or audiovisual, that the library does not own, the library will try to borrow them for you from another library. The check-out time is set by the library who is loaning the book.

The Kansas Library Express, the Kansas interlibrary courier service, provides library users with rapid and direct access to library resources. Kansas Library Express connects more than 300 libraries throughout Kansas with a convenient and cost effective delivery service that expands the ability of libraries to readily share their collections for the benefit of library users.

For more information, please visit with the Library Director Janet Keller about this service.
