Patron Interlibrary Loan Request for Books

Requesting materials from another library system is called an "Interlibrary Loan". Before submitting a request for an Interlibrary Loan (ILL), please check our Online Library Catalog or our Digital Library to see if the East Baton Rouge Parish Library owns the book or journal article.  If the item is new, i.e. published within the year, you may also request a purchase.

We do not process ILL requests for out-of-parish patrons.

If you would like to request a magazine or journal article, please click on ILL Request for Articles.
