Before placing a Marina request
How to place a Marina request
Reviewing your Marina requests:
Select 'My Account' from the profile menu in the upper right.
Marina requests will not appear in your Carroll County account requests until the item has been received at CCPL.
Please contact us if you need to cancel a request placed through Marina.
If you are unable to find materials via Marina, a request can be made to other public and academic libraries across the United States. Interlibrary Loan materials may take longer to arrive depending on availability and delivery methods. Many types of materials can be requested through Interlibrary Loans; however, many institutions do not lend new materials. Some libraries charge a fee for Interlibrary Loan materials and you will be contacted prior to ordering for approval of any applicable fees. Fees are payable at the time of pick up. Please consult with a librarian at your local branch or email us to place an Interlibrary Loan request.
