Interlibrary Loan

Alice Baker Library is happy to request items from outside the Cafe System. Wiscat, the statewide catalog, makes it simple to research and request interlibrary loan items, and libraries around the state are cooperative lenders.
Occasionally, items may be obtained from outside Wisconsin. Interlibrary loan items may take longer to arrive–from two weeks to a month or longer. Occasionally, interlibrary loan items may be restricted to in-library usage only.
Already have information on what you need? Fill out the Ill Form (.pdf) and drop it off at the library. You may also email ( the interlibrary loan desk or phone the library with requests.
