Interlibrary Loan

If the Wilton Library does not own the book you are looking for, we can usually get it for you from another library. This service is called “interlibrary loan” (ILL). We can also get photocopies of newspaper and magazine articles through interlibrary loan.

How do I request an item? There are three ways you can request that we get an item from another library:

  • You can complete a request card available at the Library reference desk; or
  • You can complete our online book request form.
  •  You may request books directly through reQuest by choosing "request this item" in the upper right corner of the screen.

How much does it cost? Most items which can be borrowed from other Connecticut libraries are provided free of charge. Some libraries may charge to photocopy an article from a newspaper or magazine, and we will pass these charges on to you. If we have to go out of state to get an item, we do charge a $3.00 postage fee in addition to whatever fees the lending library may charge.

Are there limitations? We do not handle media items through our interlibrary loan service, so we are unable to request movies, audio books, and other audiovisual materials.

Are there other options? Through the ConnectiCard program, you may use your Wilton Library card at any public library in the state. Just make sure you take your Wilton Library card with you when you go, and you will be able to check out any materials offered at neighboring libraries. You can even return materials from other libraries to the Wilton Library and we will send them back at no charge to you.
