Interlibrary Loan (MeL)

MeLCat is a statewide catalog of items held in participating libraries. These items include books, CDs, DVDs, scores, manuscripts, and other types of materials. Brandon patrons can borrow materials held by other libraries that are also members of MeLCat. If you need help searching MeLCat, please visit the help page, or ask an adult or youth services librarian. A one-time renewal of ILL materials may be granted at the discretion of the lending library.

If we do not have something you want, you can initiate an ILL request. You will need to know your library card number and pin number. Most libraries will not lend new items, entire periodicals, fragile materials or reference books. Once the hold is placed you will be notified when the item arrives at the library and is ready to be picked up.

MeL items must be renewed in BOTH your Brandon account and at mel.org.  Please call us at 248-627-1460  if you need further help.
