• The item requested must be 6 months old or older.

  • The cost is $1.75 per item to help with ILL fees and return shipping costs. Payment is due when you pick up the item.  You must pay for borrowed items, even if you do not pick them up.  People failing to pick up requested items will not be able to continue using this service.

  • You must be a Keokuk resident, a rural Lee County resident, or have purchased a Keokuk Public Library card.  (If not, you must ask for this service at your hometown library.)

  • You must have no fines, fees, or overdue items.

  • Items check out according to the rules of the lending library.  If notified, we will request a renewal on your behalf, but we must follow the lending library's decision.

  • Fines and fees are the same as all items -- please see our "Borrowing Privileges" policy and "Fee Schedule."

Fill out the form below to submit an ILL Request to library staff.

If you would like to borrow an item that is not on our shelves, you can submit an Inter-Library Loan request and we will borrow it from another library! 

It will take 1-2 weeks to receive.

For new items (less than 6 months old), please fill out the purchase request form.

Most items can be found right here in Iowa.
