Place an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Request
If, after checking in our catalog above, you do not find the materials you are looking for, we will try to find and borrow materials from other libraries in the State of Connecticut using findIT CT, the statewide catalog. This service is available to Mystic & Noank Library card holders.
To place an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading “ILL Request”. Please provide the title, author, ISBN, and subject or as much information as you have on the item you wish to request.
Please keep in mind that it takes ten days or more to receive ILL materials and items such as DVDs, reference materials, and new bestsellers are generally not available in ILL. Patrons are limited to 5 active requests at a time.
ILLs circulate for three weeks and renewals are not guaranteed. We will notify you by email if we are able to request an item as well as when we receive the item.
Library materials, excluding DVDs, can be renewed once for an extended checkout of 3 additional weeks. Item renewals can be done in-person, by phone, or online.
