The Access Pennsylvania Catalog and ILL (Interlibrary Loan) System is a coordinated resource-sharing program. Through this program, libraries throughout Pennsylvania share books, eBooks, periodicals, and DVDs, so that you can have access to library's collections all over Pennsylvania.
Since April 2002, more than 1.9 million items have been loaned to readers all over Pennsylvania.
If you can't find the book or movie you want within your county's libraries, search here! Another Pennsylvania library may have just what you want.

Frequently asked questions
What are ILL's?
ILLs are books loaned between library systems. If a library system such as BCFLS does not have an item available, they can request the item from any library system in the state. This is why if you receive an ILL item it may be from the Carnegie Library System or from the Philadelphia Library.
