If the Upper Merion Township Library does not own a particular item, we may be able to borrow it from another library. This service is referred to as InterLibrary Loan (ILL). The Upper Merion Township Library participates in a countywide ILL system as part of the Montgomery County Library and Information Network Consortium (MCLINC). The Library also obtains library materials directly from other libraries in Pennsylvania through Access PA.
Materials can be placed on hold through MCLINC directly through the catalog at home by logging into your “My Account.” You may also contact the library by phone or by visiting the library in both the Adult and Children’s Departments to place the hold. Please give ample time for materials to be transported across the system – usually 7-10 days.
Access PA Hold
To place an item on hold through Access PA, please stop by the library and ask for the ILL department. Individual patrons are unable to place materials on hold through Access PA, but you are able to see what is available.
