Borrow from another library

Our library is connected to other libraries throughout the state and nation. If you can't find an item in this library, ask library staff to help you get it from another library.


The Columbus Junction Public Library participates in the State of Iowa Interlibrary Loan program. When a patron is looking for a specific item that we do not have in our collection, we will search the interlibrary loan site and order the item from another participating Library. We do not charge for this service. Books are checked out

for a 4 week period. If the borrowed item is not picked up within 4 days after we notify the individual, we will return the item.


We are pleased to be able to offer this service to our patrons as this supplements our collection and we are always pleased to mail out a book to another Library from our collection.


Please do not hesitate to ask our staff to access this service for you.
