Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)


If the MLC Consortium does not have an item you’re interested in, our library can ask other libraries around the country to loan it to us, then we loan it to you. Material due dates and possible use restrictions are set by the loaning library, so how long you have access to materials may vary.

In order to qualify for requesting materials at the Richmond Heights Memorial Library, the following criteria must be met:

  • Requester must be a resident of Richmond Heights. (If you are not a resident but would like to request an item, please go to your home library to place the request.)
  • The material requested may not be less than 6 months from publication date. Materials published within the last 6 months are not eligible.

If these requirements are met, stop by or give us a call at 314-645-6202 to request the item.


You can also search World Cat to see if the item is available through Interlibrary Loan.
