Interlibrary Loans

Interlibrary loans are items that are borrowed from a library outside of the Shortgrass Library System for a patron. It is important to note, however, that some items held by other libraries are not available for interlibrary loan. This is often the case with audio/visual material. Interlibrary loan services are provided for free to any person with a current library card, however if the lending library charges the Duchess & District Public Library to borrow items, that cost will be passed on to the person who requested the loan.
