Interlibrary loan is a service that allows library systems to borrow and share materials with one another. Patrons may use this service when a requested item isn’t available in Livingston Parish.


If our online catalog does not show we own an item, you can use LoanShark to request those materials outside of the Livingston Parish Library system. For information on how to use LoanShark, please contact one of our library locations for help.

Recently Published Items

If the item was published within the last two to three years, please request it through your local branch. Items published within the last year are not eligible for interlibrary loan. 

Delivery Time

Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.

*Please contact your local branch if you are experiencing trouble using LoanShark.
