Our Interlibrary loan service is a great way to gain access to books or materials from libraries outside of Richland Library.
Any Richland Library cardholder* who is 18 years or older and in good standing can request up to four items at one time.
Items available via interlibrary loan include:
• Adult and Children’s fiction and nonfiction books
• Journal articles
• Audiovisual educational materials
(Items not available for interlibrary loan include materials already owned by Richland Library; repair manuals and exam books; recorded books and feature films.)
*Courtesy cardholders are not eligible to make interlibrary loan requests at this time.
Make a Request:
To request an interlibrary loan, please call 803.929.3400 or stop by the Research and Readers’ Advisory Department on the Third Level of Richland Library Main.
Pick up & Return:
A notification will be sent out by phone or email when the item(s) arrive. Materials can be picked up from the hold shelf and checked out with the library card used to place the request. Please return Interlibrary Loan materials inside to a Richland Library staff member, rather than to an outside book drop.
