Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Search Colorado Libraries
Find your item with a Prospector search and make a quick request, and our courier service will bring it to the Estes Valley Library at no charge to you! All you need is your Library card number. You’ll return your ILL items here at the Estes Valley Library, too.
If your computer blocks popups, try your search in Classic Prospector or click “Classic” at the top of the Prospector site
Can’t find it in Prospector or need a little extra help? Fill out the ILL Request form and Library staff can assist you with your search and place requests out of state. As of March 1, 2022, there is no fee for out-of-state materials.
FAQs about Interlibrary Loan
- How long will it take? Around 10 days.
- How much does it cost? All ILL requests are free for patrons as part of our agreements with participating organizations and libraries. Patrons are responsible for overdue or lost fees.
- How will I know when my item arrives? We’ll notify you by email or phone when your item is ready to pick up on our Holds Shelf.
- Looking for a new release or a bestseller? Bestsellers, new releases, and downloadable items are usually unavailable through ILL. You can place a hold on our newest items before they arrive or suggest a purchase.
