Interlibrary loan allows Matteson Public Library card holders access to materials which are
not available from the Library's collection. Our staff will search the catalogs of other libraries (including out of state libraries) and can often locate unusual or out-of-print titles. The interlibrary loan process takes from approximately 5 business days to several weeks depending on the location of the book and the library's response time.
