Interlibrary Loan

We can get it for you!

That is our staff’s goal, and with 50-plus years of resource sharing among our Nioga System libraries, you will likely have the book, movie, or other item you need to borrow in just a few days.

You may search the entire system’s catalog of holdings from your device, at, or we’ll gladly help you pinpoint what you need. With an online account with Nioga, you may easily reserve your items by placing a Hold. Your requested items will be delivered to our library (or any local library you select), free of charge. You will need your Borrower ID number from your library card, plus a PIN that you establish, to set up your Nioga online account.

Let us know in person or by phoning the library at (585) 765-9041 if we can help with this.

When your Holds have arrived here and are ready for you to borrow, you’ll receive a call from us, or an email notice from Nioga if you submitted your email address when registering.

If Nioga System libraries do NOT own what you are looking for, we are prepared to obtain your needed items through other channels. We can tap the resources of most types of libraries throughout Western New York, or search even more widely.

Often we may determine it’s beneficial and economical enough to purchase what you need for our own collection, so that others may borrow it in the future. Just let us know at the Circulation Desk and we will be happy to track down what you need!
