What can I request?
Although Inter-Library Loan was designed as a tool for researchers, requests are accepted for most items not owned by North Palm Beach Public Library, including books and genealogy materials. Please keep in mind that genealogical resources may not be obtainable by Inter-Library Loan.

Libraries typically do not loan reference materials, current bestsellers, or items in special collections. Items published in the last 12 months and theses/dissertations cannot be requested. Please call 561-841-3383 for more information.
