Use interlibrary loan to request items that are not available at the Saint Paul Public Library.
Check the Saint Paul Public Library catalog  first.
"Not available" means:
- The title is not owned by Saint Paul Public Library.
- The library owns the title, but all copies are long overdue or missing.
If you can't find what you are looking for in MNLINK, please contact the library  for assistance.
- Interlibrary loan requests that are placed for items owned by the Saint Paul Public Library will be canceled.
- New Items: If the item you are looking for has been published in the last 6 months, please make a suggestion for purchase  instead of using interlibrary loan services.
You can have up to 10 active requests at a time. Requests are active from the time they are placed until the item has been returned to the owning library.
