Getting books from other libraries not in the area.
The Sarasota County Library System suspended Inter-Library Loan services on 9/7/2011. We are currently exploring various options to bring the service back. Until that time I might suggest the following:
- If we do not have the item you are looking for on our shelves and you are a Sarasota County library card holder we can show you how to search for the item in the reciprocal catalogs of Manatee and Charlotte Counties.
- You may recommend we purchase the item for inclusion in our collection. You may do this online here. We appreciate your recommendations and will respond quickly to see if the items may be ordered.
- For scholarly items, State College of Florida offers a community card membership for Sarasota County library card holders.
