Interlibrary Loans

Interlibrary loans (ILLO) are the way library materials are made available from one library system to another. If the Huntsville Public Library does not own an item that you need, our Interlibrary Loans Department will try to get a copy sent from another library system.

To sign into your Interlibrary Loan Account use the last 6 digits of your library card as the User ID and the last 4 numbers of your phone number as the PIN.
