Our library buys the books and materials that we think are most wanted by our community. Because of limited resources and space we can’t buy everything that is published, but we can usually get it from another library. This is called interlibrary loan. Our library is part of a vast network of participating libraries that are willing to loan out materials to other libraries.
The Kalona Library offers this service free of charge. You may request books, audiobooks, music CDs as well as DVDs. We do request a limit of three items at one time and it can take 2-3 weeks for your item(s) to arrive here at the library. When your requested item(s) do arrive library staff will notify you with a phone call.
You can call the library at 319-656-3501, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a request or fill out our online form below.
