Answer

Yes, interlibrary loan services (ILL) are available through the Thousand Oaks Library.  A request can be placed in person, by phone or online via the Ask A Librarian service.  If Thousand Oaks Library does not own an item, users can request it through the interlibrary loan service. Items that are owned by the Library, patrons are welcome to request a hold through the Library's Catalog by logging into My Account.  Visit the the help page for instruction on how to request a hold.

ILL items are limited to books, photocopies of magazine articles, and microfilm.  Audiovisual materials are not available through interlibrary loan, and as a general rule materials must be more than two-years old.

Anyone requesting interlibrary loans must have a valid Thousand Oaks Library card.  There is no charge to place an ILL request, however some institutions do charge for materials made available through the interlibrary loan service.  Please indicate a maximum fee if you are willing to pay. There is a $5.00 charge for any item that is not picked up.
