Interlibrary Loan

Borrow from another library!

Interlibrary loan service is available for items that are not found in the Cedar Falls Public Library collection.  Please check our >catalog before requesting an item.

Items that may be difficult to obtain are: reference books, newly published books (less than 6 months old), audio-visual materials, and rare books.

Beginning April 15, 2019, there is a $2.00 per item charge for this service. Please note, items borrowed from Waterloo Public Library are exempt from this charge.
