Interlibrary loans

The Interlibrary Loan service is not available from 12 November 2018 to 11 December 2018 inclusive. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Flying books

If our libraries do not have the particular book you are looking for we can try to obtain a copy from  another library service as an interlibrary loan.


Cost for this service is $5 plus any other charges that apply from the lending library. For example university libraries charge an additional $16.50.


New releases, DVDs, CDs and talking books cannot be requested. A maximum of 10 requests at a time per person applies.


Requests will be processed within two weekdays. Delivery time cannot be guaranteed as it is dependent on other library services response times.


Interlibrary loan requests can be made  here or in person at any Glen Eira library. When making a request please select either Bentleigh, Carnegie, Caulfield or Elsternwick library as your collection point.
