Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Request

The library catalog lists materials available in the San Joaquin Valley Library System (SJVLS) in which Kern County Library is a member. If the materials you want are within SJVLS, you may "Request Item" without charge. Materials not in the catalog may be requested through the interlibrary loan service (ILL). In addition to a $5.00 fee per request, the lending library may charge a fee as well. Please specify the maximum amount you are willing to pay. You will be contacted before the request is filled if there are additional charges. While the ILL office is not always able to get a requested item, the staff will always try to obtain it.

The following apply to ILL loans:

  • You may make up to 5 requests per day.
  • ILL items cannot be renewed.
  • Requests take at least 2 weeks to obtain. The Library cannot guarantee a delivery date.
  • The loan period for each item is based on Kern County Library's due date from the lending library.
  • Media such as DVDs, CDs, and Cassettes are not available through ILL.
  • A fee of $5.00 will be applied per request beginning 1/4/2007.

To make an ILL request, please complete the form below. For additional information about ILL, please contact Marci Van Diver at (661) 868-0787.
