The State Library’s collection is available to all citizens. You are welcomed to visit the Library Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Materials that are available for checkout can be requested through your local library and we will gladly ship them to you. The State Library does not charge a fee for the loan of materials. Photocopies are currently $.10 a page for black and white, $.50 a page for color.
Use the online catalogs on this page if you are looking for materials that your home library does not own. Once you have found materials that you would like to borrow from another library, contact your home library to request the materials through interlibrary loan.
