Interlibrary Loan is the process of sharing resources between libraries. If the Gulf Beaches Public Library does not own the book, journal or other materials you need, we may be able to obtain them from another library. While this service is provided at a cost to the library, there is no cost to you the borrower. Placing a Request Before placing a request, please check our Library Catalog to see whether we own this item. Items are generally received within three to ten days. Turnaround time depends upon the type of item requested (book, article, etc.) and the availability of the requested item at the libraries contacted. When placing requests, please take this into consideration. You may fill out a paper request form (located at the Reference Desk). Be sure to list all relevant information for the item requested.
