Interlibrary Loan: Borrow from Other Libraries

Request Items

Interlibrary Loan is the service that gives you access to resources at other libraries. When you've searched Centenary's catalog and databases and we don't have what you need, our free interlibrary borrowing service is your best bet.

   Borrow Books & Media

Most books or DVDs arrive within two weeks. Books must be picked up at the library in Hackettstown, NJ.
*Note - Ebook licenses do not allow libraries to lend ebooks to one another - we cannot borrow ebooks.
