Less paperwork, more services!

Tired of filling out Interlibrary Loan and Materials Purchase Suggestion forms? Now you can fill them out from the website or the online catalog!

Interlibrary Loan allows you to borrow books and other items from distant libraries. You are responsible for the return postage (usually less than $2.00), and it may take 1-2 weeks to arrive, but the process gives you the means to borrow obscure, out-of-print, and hard-to-acquire items from all over the country (and even the world)!

The Materials Purchase Suggestion forms gives you the means to notify us that you think that the Southlake Library should consider purchasing an item. We can not guarantee that we will end up adding the item to the collection, but we give careful consideration to every suggestion we receive!

Look for the link to our new online survey, too, and let us know how we can improve our service to you!
