Interlibrary Loan - 1st Floor


We will be performing website system maintenance on Sunday, September 21 from 8-10:30am. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Before applying for an Interlibrary Loan Book Request, you may wish to try Link+ first.

Link+ books usually arrive in 5 days, while an ILL book may take as long as 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.

The Interlibrary Loan program is used by San Francisco Public Library cardholders seeking books or periodicals not owned by the Library. Items may be obtained from institutions throughout North America free of charge (except on rare occasions) by using the online form. Renewals may be granted in person at the Main Library or by telephone at (415) 557-4406.
