Interlibrary Loan


Our library is connected to other libraries throughout the state and nation. If you can't find an item in this library, please ask the library staff to help you borrow it from another library.

Members may request that the staff borrow items from other libraries that are not owned by the Gibson Memorial Library. When the item arrives, the library will make every effort to notify the borrowing member as soon as possible. Borrowed items are checked out for the usual period of time (2 weeks for regular members, 3 weeks for friends) and cannot be renewed. Lost or damaged interlibrary loan items are the responsibility of the member.
