Borrowing items from other libraries 

You can ask to borrow an item from a library that is not in Moreland. You can search other library catalogues to find items you may want to borrow.

When you have borrowed items, they will be automatically renewed for you twice unless they are reserved for someone else or if they are a popular item type such as a Top 20 or Top 5 book or an In Demand DVD.

You can also renew your loans by logging into your account in the library catalogue

You can also reserve items.
