If the library does not own an item, patrons may request the item for purchase or borrow it from another library through InterLibrary Loan. Library staff will determine which of these options makes the most sense for the library collection. To submit a request, please complete one of the forms below.
MCPL cardholders in good standing -- not expired or having fines -- may submit the Purchase Request Form up to five times per week. Please note that popular authors, titles, and movies (or "Bestsellers") will be regularly ordered, and patrons interested in these materials should monitor the Library's catalog to place a hold when the item becomes available.
MCPL cardholders in good standing -- not expired or having fines -- may submit the ILL Request Form to borrow materials from participating libraries throughout Texas and the United States. Requests may take 2-3 weeks to arrive, and recipients are responsible for return postage (based on weight) required through the ILL program. Requests for an item already owned by MCPL will be cancelled.
