Interlibrary Loan

Hutchinson Public Library will begin taking Interlibrary Loan requests for materials we do not own on July 1.  Please note that due to the Pandemic and increased activity with Covid-19 we will be very limited in our borrowing capacity.  Many libraries will still be closed or working on only a partial basis within their buildings.  We will be limiting the items each person can borrow to 2 items per week, beginning on Mondays. (Please note our hours have changed)

  • We cannot be held responsible for items that are held up by lending libraries who may need to close due to community COVID-19 conditions. 
  • We do not borrow items that we own.
  • Items must be at least 6 months old for books and 1 year for movies. Otherwise a Purchase Request will be submitted for our collection.
  • Borrowing a different format of an item we own is acceptable.
  • Please give us only your phone number since no auto emails can be sent at this time.
  • All items will be quarantined for 5 days upon arrival and before they are returned to the lender - (Due Dates will be affected to allow for quarantine delays).
  • Items will be placed in the outside dropbox for return and MUST include the paperwork
  • Rubber Bands are acceptable to hold the paperwork to the item - NO ADHESIVE (TAPE)
  • At this time we will not be borrowing microfilm
