Interlibrary Loan

West Florida Public Library has a great selection of materials, but sometimes the library might not own the exact item that you’re looking for. That’s where our InterLibrary Loan (ILL) service comes in handy. 
Using our special Do It Yourself (DIY) network, you can locate a book, audiobook or CD at a library in Florida or anywhere in the United States, request it, and then pick it up at WFPL.
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3! 
1 – Grab your WFPL card to begin
2 – Check our catalog to confirm that the item is not owned by the WFPL system. (If it is, you may place a hold on the item and you will be called when it becomes available for you.)
3 – If WFPL does not own the item Search and request the item from other libraries. 
Currently, patrons are allowed to request up to 4 items (books, audiobooks or CDs, but not DVDs) within a 30 day period.
Having trouble finding your item or using the ILL system? Give us a call at 850.436.5066 for help.  
 
What else can you request?

You may also request copies of documents that are owned by another library. This includes articles from magazines or newspapers, obituaries and more.

 To request a copy of a document, download, complete and sign a Photocopy Request Form and drop it off at your nearest library branch.
