Changes to Interlibrary Loan, effective Jan. 11, 2024

Due to increased shipping costs, effective January 11, 2024, the Capital Area Library District member libraries, including Perry County libraries, will provide Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services using the Access Pennsylvania (Access PA) catalog to obtain the items you request. Items will no longer come from out of state libraries. District loans will continue to come from the catalogs of the three counties, as usual (Dauphin, Cumberland, and Perry).
