Inter-library Loan Program


If we do not carry a book you would like to read in our collection, you can request it from another library in the state through the Inter-library Loan (ILL) system which connects libraries, including those of schools, colleges, universities and public libraries all across the state of Pennsylvania.


You must maintain a valid library card with our library. Then all you need to do is fill out a simple form listing the author and title. We will do our best to locate the book at another state library within two to three weeks. Books cannot be acquired through ILL until they have been on a library's shelf for six months.


ILL books are delivered to the Mahanoy City Public Library every Thursday. You pick your book up at the front desk and return it here on the due date. ILL Books must be renewed at least three days before the due date.
