How can I get a book or other item the library does not own?

If you are looking for an item that is not in the LARL collection, you can often still obtain the item, either by requesting that the library purchase the item, or by borrowing the item from a library outside of the LARL system.

If you would like to suggest that the library purchase a particular item, click here.

You can search other Minnesota libraries by using MnLINK, a catalog of most libraries in Minnesota. You only need your 14-digit barcode number to request items through MnLINK. Items will be sent to the library you specify.
