Don't See the Book You Want in the Library?
Here's How to Get It!

Inter-library Loan

In most cases, we can request a book from another library and have it within a few days. Just ask at the circulation desk.

 

Request for Purchase

We love getting requests and recommendations! If we think the book should be in the ALPL collection, we’ll buy it and let you know when it is available for check-out.

 

Cloud Library

Hundreds of e-books and audio books are available on Cloud Library through our website. Just go to alplibrary.org, click on “On-line Resources,” and scroll down to Cloud Library. Once you enter your library card number and download the appropriate app, you can access fiction, non-fiction, best sellers, classics, young adult, and childrens’ books and enjoy these resources  on your personal media devices.
