Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan is used to request titles not owned by Anoka County Library.

Please first verify that Anoka County Library does not own a title by searching the library catalog by author, title, and keyword. If ACL does not own the item and it was published at least six months ago, you may place an online Interlibrary Loan Request using MNLINK.

ACL will attempt to borrow the item from another library system for your use. Interlibrary loans usually take two to three weeks to receive but may take much longer if not available in a Minnesota library.

PLEASE NOTE: We have temporarily reduced the number of active interlibrary loan requests you may have from 15 to 5 because of the current pandemic and the disruptions it has caused in the interlibrary loan supply chain.  This includes requests being ordered, checked out, or returned.

For titles published within the last six months, please use the Purchase Suggestion form.

For more local borrowing opportunities, check for availability at other Metro Area Libraries.
