Interlibrary loan of materials from other libraries
If you want a book or periodical article that is not available at the SCC Library we can usually get it for you through interlibrary loan. We'll locate a library that owns the item you want then get it sent to the SCC Library for you to borrow. (Keep in mind that it could take ten days, two weeks, or longer for an item to arrive if it's coming from a library outside Spokane.) To request an item through interlibrary loan, contact the SCC Library.
