What can I do if the library doesn't have a book I want?

If you find that we do not have the book you are looking for there are several options for you.

  • Library 2 Go, has several ebooks available
  • You may request that we order the book and add it to our collection
  • You may also request the book through the Inter Library Loan Program - allowing you to check out the book from a partnering library and have it shipped to Grand Forks Public_
