Interlibrary Loan

The process of borrowing items from non-Brown County Libraries is called Interlibrary loan. In order to place an interlibrary loan request, accounts need to be active and in good standing. When Brown County Library doesn’t own an item, we can use WISCAT to see if another library in Wisconsin owns the item.


As an important note, not everything can be requested through interlibrary loan and not all requests can be filled.


Items 6 months old and newer cannot be borrowed through interlibrary loan. If an item you are interested in is within 6 months of its publication date, tell the library about it with this form. If you aren’t sure if an item is too new for an interlibrary loan request try checking for the publication information.


Search the catalog for the item in Brown County first to make sure you need to fill out an interlibrary loan request.
