Interlibrary Loan and Placing a Hold

Use interlibrary loan and holds for items that aren't immediately available for checkout! 

Interlibrary Loan

The Carlock Public Library District is a member of the Resource Sharing Alliance (RSA), a consortium of more than 140 central and west-central Illinois libraries. You may request materials from any RSA-member library through RSAcat for pick-up at the Carlock Public Library District.

If you’re interested in materials that are not available from any RSA-member library, we will try to borrow it through our interlibrary loan service for you. Our library staff can help you request materials through interlibrary loan.

Place a Hold

To “wait in line” for a particular item, you may place a hold. From the RSAcat, search the item you’re looking for. If it is not available, you may click the “place a hold” button, and you’ll be notified when the item is waiting for you to pick up at the library.

You may also place a hold in person or by calling the library at (309) 376-5651.
