Can't Find It?

I'm looking for a book GCPL does not own, but I could use a book with similar information instead.

Suggestions for the Collection
I'd like to request that the library purchase a specific title.

Please let us know about materials you'd like to see in GCPL's collection. While we cannot respond to each individual suggestion, we carefully consider customer input, and compile suggestions as part of our overall community-based collection building. Please note that most new titles are ordered within the month of publication. Read more about our general approaches to building the GCPL collection here. For follow up assistance regarding your requests or suggestions, or for additional information, please contact us.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Request
I'd like to borrow an older book, but GCPL does not own a copy.

Before requesting an ILL, we ask you to please confirm that GCPL does not already own the title.
Simply search the catalog using:
  • title
  • series
  • author 
  • or ISBN
ILL is available for print materials published more than 12 months ago and microform, which must be used at the Collins Hill Branch. We will notify you when the title arrives at your selected pick-up branch location, or if we are unable to fill the request. It may take 4 - 8 weeks for your ILL title to arrive. Once it does, you have 7 days to pick it up. ILL cost is $2.00 per title per filled request, due when you pick up the item. Please note: the fee is due regardless of whether the ILL is picked up.
