If items are not available at Yarra Libraries or Libraries Victoria, we are often able to borrow them from other libraries on your behalf through Inter Library Loans. Our Inter Library Loan service uses the national Libraries Australia Document Delivery system  To request an item for Inter Library Loan, visit our catalogue and click on 'Send a Request' at the top of the page. You will be prompted to log into your Library account. Then select "ILL-request" and complete the form. For more information, please speak with staff in branch or call us on 1300 695 427.
