Delivery takes on average 5-7 business days--sometimes faster and occasionally a little longer. If the first library contacted cannot supply the book needed, your request will be transferred automatically to the next library in the queue. You can also borrow directly from any I-Share library in person.* View a map of Chicagoland I-Share libraries.
The first time you request an item through I-Share, you will need to create an account - check out our guide to completing this quick, one-time process.
*The Newberry Library is one exception in that none of its material may be requested or otherwise borrowed.
