A web-based tool for keeping track of what’s due, overdue and ready for pickup. Users can keep track of one or more library accounts in one place and receive reminders (sometimes called pre-overdue or early notification). Reminders are sent when the user wants it — before items are due (up to seven days advance notice, weekly notice or everyday reminders). A great tool for families or anyone who’d like reminders before an item is due.

Inter-Library Loan

Inter-library Loan (ILL) allows a patron to request items not available through the Municipal Library Consortium from libraries across the country. ILL is available to Kirkwood cardholders who hold a valid library card with less than $5.00 in fines/fees.

To search for materials, utilize the WorldCat Discovery or FirstSearch database.

Inter-library loan items may be requested online using the FirstSearch database from home or within the Library. Online requests through Worldcat Discovery can only be made within the Library. Requests can also be made by visiting the Reference Desk or calling (314) 821 5770, Option 2. Please provide as much information as possible about the item you desire. Please note, that most libraries will generally not loan out items that are less than one year old.
