Current and New ILL Fulfillment requests are being put on a temporary hold.

Due to the ongoing Corvid-19 virus issue, we are having to put a hold on filling and processing new ILL requests. Once operations have returned to normal, we will then reopen the fulfillment process.

Current checkouts can be returned to any of our three library locations outside book drops. There will be no fines assessed during this period.

Items currently awaiting pick up will be returned and no fines or fees will be assessed. You will be able to reorder these items, once normal operations have resumed, and this will be at no additional cost to you.

The Palos Verdes Library District is an active participant in Interlibrary Loan (ILL), a process by which different library systems share their resources with one another.
Requests are accepted for materials that are NOT found in the Palos Verdes Library District's collections.

A non-refundable fee of $2 per ILL request is assessed when the request is placed.
For information about what can be borrowed, fines, fees, and other ILL policies, please read the Frequently Asked Questions.

Anyone with a valid library card can use our interlibrary loan service.

Below are the steps to place ILL requests on books and articles:

  • From the PVLD website, click on Research, then click on WorldCat.
