Renew an Interlibrary Loan

Contact us or stop by the Adult Help Desk to renew an interlibrary loan item before the item's due date. Interlibrary loan items cannot be renewed through your online account. Once an item is overdue, we can no longer renew the item.

Overdue interlibrary loans are charged a fine of $.25 per day ($1.00 for videos).

*Some Ordering Restrictions Apply

Please note we cannot order interlibrary loan materials that are six months or newer. We also cannot order materials that we have in our collection but are currently checked out.

You must have a valid Wauconda Area Library card to place an interlibrary loan order.

You are limited to five Interlibrary Loans at one time (requested, in process, and/or received).
