There are a number of options for locating materials at the library. You can start by searching the Blackstone Library catalog. If the item is available, you can place a hold or call the Reference Department at 203.488.1441, ext. 318 to have it set aside for you.
If an item is not available at Blackstone, you can search the LION libraries catalog and place a hold. The owning library will send it to us and we will contact you when it arrives.
If the item is not available in the LION libraries catalog, you can search the State catalog. Branford residents can request an interlibrary loan; residents of other towns should make this request through their hometown library.
If you are interested in borrowing an ebook or audiobook, search our Axis360 and OverDrive catalogs. Please keep in mind that Axis360 is available for Branford residents and OverDrive for LION library patrons.
