  • All reciprocal borrowing use of the Library will be subject to the same rules and regulations as resident patron use.


Reciprocity Limitations:

  • Inter-Library Loan requests are available to Fox Lake District resident patrons only. Please contact your home library for more information about Inter-Library Loans.
