Inter-library Loan (ILL) Limits:
Items are usually loaned out for 2 weeks and renewals can be requested but that is at the lending library's discretion.
If you have a current Stowe Free Library card in good standing, this PDF form can be filled out, saved and emailed directly to the interlibrary loan librarian, Marena Youngs. If you would prefer, you can stop by the library to fill out a paper form.
Questions, please call 253-6145 or email [email protected] and Jessica will be happy to help you with your request.
This is a free service and made possible by the Institute of Museum and Library Science.
For more information, please see the Stowe Free Library Inter-Library Loan Policy.
The Interlibrary loan program is supported in part by the Institute of Museum & Library Services, a federal agency, through the Library Servcies & Technology Act as administered by the Vermont Department of Libraries.
