Interlibrary Loans, or ILLs for short, are special requests for the library to borrow materials that are not owned within its regular lending network. All current Bozeman Public Library patrons with fines under $10 are welcome to submit an Interlibrary Loan request. Please note that materials owned by Gallatin County libraries or published within the last year are not eligible for borrowing.

Renew an ILL Material 

Use this form to request a one-time renewal for your Interlibrary loan. Renewal requests MUST be submitted two (2) to five (5) days before the due date. You may keep the item until you receive a phone call from Interlibrary Loan with your new due date. All fines will be erased while you are waiting to hear back from us.
