Interlibrary Loan

Find More Illinois:

Sterling Public Library patrons now have the ability to search for materials from other Illinois libraries (outside of our consortium) via Find More Illinois.  Patrons may use this resource instead of the traditional InterLibrary Loan form.   The Find More Illinois Catalog searches multiple Illinois library catalogs at once.  Log in with your library barcode and pin to place a request, and you will be notified when the item is at the Sterling Public Library.  If you can’t find a participating library with the item you want, please fill out the traditional InterLibrary Loan form below.

Patrons can search the Find More Illinois catalog by clicking here.

Traditional InterLibrary Loan:

You must have a valid resident or non-resident Sterling Public Library card. If your home library card is not a Sterling Public Library card, you must place the request at your home library.

Requests for new books (six months old or newer) may not be able to be filled. Please allow 2 - 4 weeks for your request to be processed. You will receive a call or email when your item is at the library. You will also be notified if the request cannot be filled.

If you are requesting a DVD or CD, please include as much information (actors, directors, release year, etc) as possible to insure we request the correct item.
