Reserve and Hold Items

Heyworth Public Library shares materials with area libraries to make it easier to get you what you want.  Whether you are looking for an item at Heyworth Public Library that is checked out or you are looking for an item that the library doesn’t own, you may reserve the material by placing a hold on it.  You will receive an email or a phone call when the material is available for you to checkout.

Occasionally, you will look for an item that is not owned by an area library.  As a free service to patrons living in Heyworth Public Library District, the library staff will search all libraries in Illinois in an attempt to locate and request the item for you.  A request may be made in person, by phone at (309)473-2313, or online using the Interlibrary Loan Request Form.
