logo for the Blair County Library System

The library is part of the Blair County Library System, and our new union catalog means you can easily request materials from any of Blair County’s eight libraries. These instructions will walk you through the request process step by step: resource sharing patron instructions

Please note that newer materials may not be available from other libraries in the Blair County Library System.

If you need help placing holds on materials from other libraries, a librarian is always happy to help you. Ask at the checkout desk, or call us at 742-8234.

If you need something and none of the libraries in Blair County own it, we can request materials for you via Access PA, the statewide interlibrary loan system. To request a book from Access PA, talk to a librarian.
