Interlibrary Loan

The Atkins Public Library offers an Interlibrary Loan through the State of Iowa Library. If the Atkins Public Library does not own a copy of an item you would like to check out, we can try to borrow it from another library in Iowa. 

Deliveries from other libraries are dropped off to the Atkins Public Library weekly, but that does not guarentee that an item would come in the following week. 

We will ask for your contact information and call you when the item does come in and you can pick it up at your earliest convience. If the item is not picked up within one week, it will be sent back to it's original library, unless Library staff is notified otherwise.
