Santa Fe Public Library

Interlibrary Loan


Change in Interlibrary Loan Service, May 2019


Due to staff shortages, we will not accept new Interlibrary Loan requests during the month of May.  We will process all requests made in April and will make them available to patrons in May.  ILL books due in May must be returned by their due dates.

Please note that starting in June, each patron may submit a maximum of 3 Interlibrary Loan requests per month. We apologize for the inconvenience and will begin accepting Interlibrary Loan requests again on June 1, 2019.

Requesting materials, which are not part of the Santa Fe Public Library collection from another library, is called Interlibrary Loan, often referred to as ILL. Before submitting a request for an Interlibrary Loan, please check the Library Catalog to ensure that the library does not already own the item. Santa Fe Public Library cannot obtain materials through Interlibrary Loan that it owns.

To use this service, your Santa Fe Public Library account must be in good standing. A maximum of three Interlibrary Loan requests may be made in one calendar month. Please keep in mind that items may take two to four weeks to arrive.

You will be notified when Interlibrary Loan materials are ready for pick up in the same manner you are with items owned by the Santa Fe Public Library.

Please note that the following materials are not available through Interlibrary Loan:

  • Books published within the last six months
  • DVDs, VHS, CDs, and other non-print media
