What is Interlibrary Loan?
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is a service offered to you by the Sedona Public Library. We borrow books, audiobooks, videos, DVDs, and CDs from other libraries that are not available through the Yavapai Library Network. We can also obtain articles from magazines and journals that we do not own. You must have a Sedona Public Library card in order to request an item through Interlibrary Loan.
There is a $3.00 fee if the item comes from a library outside the State of Arizona.
How Do I Make a Request?
Please be sure to search the Sedona Public Library’s Online Catalog prior to requesting an item from Interlibrary Loan.
You can place an ILL request:
- By filling out the request form below.
- In person at the Reference Desk.
- By telephone: 928-282-7714.
You can also submit an ILL request directly from FirstSearch’s WorldCat database.
If you have never used WorldCat to place an Interlibary Loan request, please see the Guide to using WorldCat.
How will I be notified when my material arrives?
When your book/CD/DVD has arrived, you will receive a phone call or an email letting you know that you can come pick it up at the Reference Desk.
How long can I keep an item?
The lending library decides how long to extend the due date. The average loan period is 3 weeks. You are responsible for your ILL materials. Please return them by the due date or contact the library to request a renewal. Your failure to return materials on time may jeopardize our borrowing privileges with other libraries.
What is generally not available through Interlibrary Loan?
- New best sellers and books published within the last six months
- Rare books
- Many libraries will not lend audio visual materials such as DVDs and CDs, but we will attempt to obtain these for you.
- Entire issues of magazines or journals
- Reference books or books in special collections
Where do I return Interlibrary Loan materials?
Please return them to the Reference Desk at the Sedona Public Library with the orange ILL label attached. Please do not place Interlibrary Loan materials in the book drop without the attached label. Fines are .25 cents per day for overdue material.
