Interlibrary loan (ILL) is the state and nationwide sharing of materials between libraries. Subject to local borrowing rules, a resident of the 12-county SCKLS taxing area may initiate an interlibrary loan request free-of-charge from any SCKLS member library.
SCKLS provides interlibrary loan services and encourages resource sharing among all libraries. We also offer training and support for the delivery of these services to each member library.
