Books, films, periodical articles, and recordings may be borrowed from the North County Library System (NCLS) or its member libraries. An interlibrary loan form must be filled out to request an item. Interlibrary loan requests take a minimum of two weeks to fill, about 60% are filled within four weeks. If you wish us to attempt to obtain an item outside the NCLS service area, you may have to reimburse us for our shipping costs for the item and/or a charge from the library sending the item to us. Please indicate on the form whether you will accept charges if required and at what level. Items WILL NOT be requested from libraries outside the system unless you agree to accept charges which might result.
