Interlibrary Loan Request

Interlibrary loan is the process that allows requesting material not available at the Windsor Public Library branches from other libraries. In order to make an interlibrary loan request, you must enter your contact information.

Patrons are limited to five (5) requests per week.
Due to the large number of databases checked for your material, please allow up to 6-8 weeks for materials to arrive


The Interlibrary Loan Dept (ILLO) always makes an effort to get requested material from non-charging sources first.
However, if the item is only available from charging libraries, then this charge must be paid by the user.

Book charges could be anywhere from $10.00 to $40.00 and photocopy charges could be less or more depending on the number of pages requested.
If the item is only available from a charging location, you will be notified before the request is sent.

Note: The library does not request any audio/visual material through the interlibrary loan system.


The loan period is determined by the LENDING library, and is subject to their renewal policies. Renewals are granted at the discretion of the lending library.

    Agree didn’t realize their were comments until i scrolled down to see stuff I was just about to request an Interlibrary loan because i figure the Librarian i spoke to might of forgotten/gotten busy because i didn’t see the book i requested. I’ll just wait the 6 to 8 weeks then.

    Yes it includes the University Library and not limited to Windsor.
    The service between our library and the Universities is not free though.
