When you need an item that is not available at the Lemont Public Library or within the Pinnacle Library System, you may request it through the inter-library loan program with a valid Lemont Library card.

You may request an item through inter-library loan using the Pinnacle catalog by choosing WorldCat Libraries Worldwide in the Select area. If your item appears you may place the hold. There is a $2.00 postage fee for items borrowed out-of-state.  Before processing a request for an out-of-state item, one of the reference librarians will contact you to get your agreement to pay the fee.  The fee is collected when you checkout the item.

When the item arrives at the library you will be notified. If an item is not available, we will also notify you. Loan periods vary depending upon the policy of the lending institution. You may request a renewal; however, we must first contact the lender for approval.

If you need assistance, please contact a reference librarian.


In observance of Memorial day, the Lemont Public Library will be closed Sunday, May 26th & Monday, May 27th. The AV & Book drops will not be available due to parking lot resurfacing. Fines will not accrue during the closing. The library will re-open Tuesday, May 28th at 9:00 AM.
