Interlibrary Loan


The Stubbs Memorial Library participates in and uses regional and state interlibrary networks and is a member of the Open Access and Enrich Iowa programs with the State of Iowa. Stubbs Memorial library is part of the Iowa SILO network.

Patrons must live in Holstein or rural Ida County to make interlibrary loan requests. Patrons of other libraries are encouraged to use their local town library first. Loan requests need to be made out at the circulation desk. Not all items requested are possible to be loaned due to demand, age of title, condition or other factors. There is no fee for interlibrary loan transactions, thanks to the IA Shares courier program that transports interlibrary loan materials. Fees may apply if the loan request is out of the Iowa Library service network.

The patron who made the loan request assumes responsibility for lost and damaged interlibrary loan materials.     

The Stubbs Memorial Library also loans materials of its collection out to other Iowa libraries.
