How do I get a book that WCPL doesn't own?
Last Updated: Jun 12, 2018 Views: 166
If WCPL does not own a title that you want to read, you may suggest it for purchase.
All purchase suggestions are reviewed by the Collection Development staff; purchase decisions are based on our collection development guidelines. Please note that you will receive a reply from Wake County Public Libraries ONLY if your suggestion is chosen for purchase.
You can request some items through Interlibrary Loan (ILL):
- Print books
- Books on CD
- Journal articles
Interlibrary Loan items usually arrive within 2 to 6 weeks. You may use ILL as long as you don't have fines over $10 or any lost items on your account.
Contact your local library for more information.
