Interlibrary loans


If we don't have a particular book you're looking for, we can try to arrange a copy for you from other public and university libraries. 

Please note: Access to LibraryLink Victoria has now ended. A new way to source items from outside Glen Eira Libraries and the Libraries Victoria network is coming later in 2020.
