Want an item we don't have? After verifying in our online catalog that we do not have the item, you can place a request either through Request to Purchase or InterLibrary Loan.

Request to Purchase:

To place a request for KYL to purchase a title for the collection, visit the library, call 832-9100, or email info@kylib.org with the name and author of the title you would like, as well as your name, phone number, and your library card number. We will take your request into consideration per our Collection Development Policy.  We can Interlibrary Loan the item if we do not the purchase the item for the collection.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL):

To place an ILL, visit the library, call 832-9100, or email info@kylib.org with the name and author of the title you would like, as well as your name, phone number, and your library card number. We will contact other libraries in the state and borrow the item from them if it is available.  It takes approximately 5-7 days to receive the item.  The title will not be a permanent addition to our collection. There is a $2.00 fee to cover the cost of postage with this service and you must have a Kendall Young Library card in order to place an ILL.
