Interlibrary Loan

Want to borrow something that isn't part of Greene County Public Library's collection? We partner with other library systems across the state and around the world to make millions of additional items available to check out with your library card.

How It Works

Start by searching for the item you want in our catalog. Can't find what you're looking for?

First, check to see if the item is available in SearchOhio, opens a new window | SearchOhio Policies

If needed, next see if the item is available in OhioLINK | OhioLINK Policies

If neither of those searches are successful, try seeing if the item is available in WorldCat | WorldCat Policies

Once you locate the item you need, request it for delivery to your local library.

If you're trying to find a journal article that isn't available locally, please fill out our article request form.


To make an interlibrary loan request, you must have a valid Greene County Public Library card with less than $5 in fines.

You also need to read and understand the borrowing policies of the service providing the item. Each has its own lending periods, fines, and other rules.

Need Some Help?

Call or visit the information desk at your local library if you'd like a librarian to assist you with finding or requesting an item.

A complete list of guidelines for requesting library materials is available in our Public Policy Manual.

Our Resource Sharing office is in charge of handling interlibrary loans, and you can call them directly at (937) 736-7071 with additional questions.
