Fulton County Library System is proud to serve our patrons through Interlibrary Loan. Interlibrary Loan (or ILL) is a process that allows our library system to borrow items that we do not own from other libraries and library systems.
Please check our catalog before placing an ILL request. We cannot place ILL requests for items the library owns.
