Interlibrary Loan

If an item you wish to borrow is not found at the East Palestine Library, we can attempt to locate the item through Interlibrary Loan.  In September 2020, East Palestine Library, Columbiana Library, Lepper Library (Lisbon), Salem, and Wellsville Library formed the PLUS Consortium.  We will first check for the item in the PLUS catalog but is not available, we can search for the item on SearchOhio or OhioLink.

PLUS Libraries catalog

Patrons can log in to the PLUS Libraries catalog to locate an item and request that item to be delivered to East Palestine Library for pick-up.  Patrons in good standing can also use their East Palestine Library card at any of the member libraries and return the item to the East Palestine Library. 


SearchOhio allows over 16 million items available to our card holders. The SearchOhio catalog allows direct, online requests for residents of Ohio and delivery of books and other library media within a short time period.  


OhioLink is the statewide consortium of academic libraries.  It serves 117 libraries and 88 institutions plus the State Library of Ohio. OhioLink and its member libraries provide access to more than 38 million books and other library materials.
