We regret to inform you that interlibrary loan lending between libraries is temporarily suspended, due to extended contract negotiations at the state level for the van delivery service. 

We do not currently have firm dates for the length of this interruption, but the State Library is working to restore interlibrary loan lending as soon as possible. Sharing between libraries is one of the best and most valuable services, and we understand and apologize for the inconvenience and frustration. 

When using our catalog, you will still be able to request items that we own, but you'll be unable to request items that are not locally owned. 

More info about this situation can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/5n6t5rpn

Please let us know if you have any questions. We are here to help, and together, we will navigate this challenging situation!
