Interlibrary Loan

We may also borrow items on your behalf from all other libraries in Vermont. Lending libraries set their own rules about what items they are willing to loan, so not all materials will be available from all libraries.   Sometimes, we may borrow for you through the Department of Libraries to obtain an item from out of the state.    This service is available ONLY to patrons with Richmond cards.
