Interlibrary Loan

Search for Items First:

  1. CLAMS Library Network catalog – This catalog contains the holdings from most Cape Cod and the Island Libraries.  You can request most items directly from the online catalog and have them delivered to the library of your choice.
  2. Commonwealth Catalog – You can use your library card and pin# to request these items yourself.
  3. Only when you cannot find the item in the CLAMS catalog or the Commonwealth Catalog, you may submit an Interlibrary Loan request.
  4. If we are unable to obtain the item you are looking for, submit a purchase request using the form below. Our Collection Development Policy guides our purchase decisions, but in general, we attempt to purchase requested items if they are not too specialized or expensive.

If you would like assistance with any of the above options, please call the reference desk 508-457-2555 x6 during library hours.

Use this form only when you cannot find the item in the two catalogs listed above.

Fill out as much information as you can below. Author and title are required. You must include your library card number; we only accept requests from registered borrowers.

The Falmouth Public Library will try to locate and borrow items from libraries that do not charge lending fees and are within our state delivery system.
