Interlibrary Loan: What is it?
Resources are shared among libraries in order to meet the information,
creation, and research needs of library users. The purpose of an interlibrary
loan is to obtain, upon request of a library user, material not available in the
user’s local library. It is not meant to replace the library’s material but to
expand and enrich it. Winnebago Public Library participates in OCLC
WorldShare Interlibrary Loan System.
WPL receives interlibrary loan deliveries weekly on Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday mornings (excluding holiday and weather related closings).
Our Interlibrary Loan Service is ONLY available to WPL resident patrons.
