How do I get a book from the Library?

After you have searched the catalog, using the one search box, you may use the Google form below to request a book and Dr. Waugh will pull it for you at her earliest convenience. Alternatively, come by the library and check out the book using the clipboard on Dr. Waugh's Desk. 

Montgomery County Library

Check Montgomery County Library! In addition to print books, there are many e-books. You can place holds and even request books via Interlibrary Loan (ILL) if MCPL doesn't have what you need. If you are placing a hold expect it to take a few days for something that is in, but located at another branch. For ILL it may take a week or more to come in. 

DC Public Library

DCPL has a really strong collection and will deliver a book you need to your local branch when you place a hold. DCPL does participate in Interlibrary Loan (ILL) but there may be a fee associated with it, so it is best to check with the library before placing a request.
