Inter-Library Loans (ILL's)
Arlington public school libraries cooperate with each other by allowing students and staff from one school to borrow library materials from another school. These requests must be made through the Librarians at the respective schools. All regular policies regarding borrowing privileges also apply to Inter-Library Loans.
