Interlibrary Loan

FCL is happy to request materials through Interlibrary Loan on behalf of our patrons. There are no fees for this service, although donations to cover the cost of postage are accepted, and welcomed. The recommended donation for postage is $3.00.

Requests can be made in-person at the library, over the phone (563-425-3344), email (, or by using the form on the left.

Patrons are responsible for replacement costs for damaged or lost materials, or any additional fees charged by the lending library.

State of Iowa Libraries Online (SILO) is a joint program of Iowa Library Services/State Library and the Iowa State University Library. SILO project staff maintain a statewide union catalog and Web-based interlibrary loan application for Iowa libraries, and work with Iowa public libraries to facilitate high speed Internet access and statewide access to electronic databases, such as FirstSearch and EBSCOhost.
