Upon patron request, the interlibrary loan staff will attempt to borrow materials not available in the Adair County Public Library's collection.
A Courier service was started in September of 2009 sponsored by the State Library through KCMLIN and material can now be requested from 350 libraries throughout 3 states.
Shown is an example of the interlibrary form a patron will fill out when requesting an item the ACPL does not have in our collection.

The Adair County Public Library will do a computer search for the request on the national computer network, OCLC. Overdue fees for interlibrary loans also apply and most loan items are not renewable. The borrower will be responsible for any damages incurred while checked out.
