If Penfield Doesn't Have What You Need

If our library doesn't have the books / articles you need, we can order them from another library. 

  • Benefits: Get just about any book or article ever--for FREE.
  • Drawbacks: It takes a couple days to arrive. Plan on 2-3 business days for an article, or 5-7 business days for a book.

This is called Interlibrary Loan.
