I love Inter-Library loan. It’s the best. If you love LDS fiction, like I do, but don’t live in Utah, it is the way to go. Here in Texas, there isn’t much LDS fiction available at the libraries, so if you want to read LDS fiction, you’ll have to buy the books. Or, you can check out Inter-Library loan. I think it is available at any library throughout the U.S.
If you’re interested, check with your local library. Most likely, if you live outside of Utah and you’re looking for LDS fiction, it won’t be available in your library. So, find the titles you want, call your library and ask them to check the availability of those books through ILL.
You might not be able to get books that have recently been released, but I was able to get a few titles that came out earlier this year. I ordered three books, and on Friday, they called me to tell me all of them had arrived. Hooray. One of them comes all the way from BYU-Hawaii. The other two are from Shelley, Idaho. There is no cost for checking these books out. So, look into ILL loan. It’s the best. I just love libraries. I don’t know what I would do without them.
