Searching for Penfield Library Books


You are welcome to use the Penfield Library Catalog to check our holdings, but as a distance learner you may find it more convenient to use our Ebooks or to search for our holdings and those of other libraries using WorldCat (as described below) or our Worldwide Libraries Catalog.


Using WorldCat for Book Delivery

WorldCat connects you to the collections of more than 10,000 libraries worldwide.  If you are a distance learner living outside of the 13126 Zip Code, books and media OWNED by Penfield Library may be requested online through our interlibrary loan service (ILLIAD).  The material will be shipped to your home through UPS with a return authorization label.

In WorldCat use "Limit availability to: Items in my library" to see only what can be delivered.  Click on the desired title and then on 

"Request+via+Interlibrary+Loan Request via Interlibrary Loan" to place your request.
