Interlibrary Loan

If you need an item the Southfield Public Library does not own, and you live in Southfield and have a Southfield Library card, we can attempt to find it and borrow it for you!

The Southfield Public Library is a member of the Michigan eLibrary (MeL).  MeL is an anywhere, anytime library for Michigan residents. MeLCat is an online catalog and delivery service that allows patrons of hundreds participating Michigan libraries to borrow materials – books, movies, CDs and more – from all over the state and have them delivered to their home Library.

Ask a Librarian to initiate a MelCat search if we do not own an item you are looking for, or search MeLCat yourself through the Southfield Public Library catalog, Encore. (You can order your own titles provided your Southfield Library card is current and in good standing. If you have questions, please contact the Library).
