What Services do you offer?
E-ZBorrow is an online catalog that allows you to search academic libraries in Pennsylvania and surrounding states for books. If one of the libraries has an available copy it will be sent to our library, usually within 5 working days. You will receive a series of emails with the status of your order every step of the way, including: when the item was shipped; when you can pick it up at the library; and when it has been returned to the lending library. It’s a fast and easy way to get the books you need.
