Borrow Beyond Altoona

If you are an Altoona or rural Polk County resident, you can borrow from across Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, and beyond! Use the online catalog to search for an item. If it’s not there, use the MOBIUS link in the lower left column to send your search to MOBIUS. Not there? Use the Prospector link from MOBIUS to search Colorado libraries. Use your library card to place a hold on the item and it will be shipped.

Call the library to submit an Interlibrary Loan request for items in Iowa. We recommend trying a MOBIUS/Prospector search first.

We receive MOBIUS items three times a week via courier service. Interlibrary Loan is delivered via U.S. Postal Service.
