What is Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary Loan is a library-to-library lending service.  If the Providence Library does not have an item that you need for your research, the library can borrow it for you from another library.  Returnable items usually arrive in less then 5 days, but it's best to allow at least 10 days.  The lending library may send books via UPS, Fed-EX or USPS.  Articles are usually sent via e-mail..
