Borrow from Another Library

Our library is connected to other libraries throughout the state and nation.  Materials that are not in our current collection may be obtained from other libraries.  If you cannot find the items you want from this location you can interlibrary loan them.

  • Individuals must be patrons of the Williamsburg Public Library to use this program
  • Stop in, call (319)668-1195, or complete your request online
    • Please include both Title and Author if possible
    • If you want books on a certain subject please be as specific as possible
  • Materials from interlibrary loans are usually on loan for 3 weeks (some restrictions do apply)
  • There is a $2.00 postage fee per loan
    • If there is an item that has been loaned but not picked up, the fee will be added to patron's account


This is a wonderful service that the library provides for our patrons. You can loan books for school, a book club, find a book on your new pet, etc.  Please feel free to utilize this program as often as you would like.
