Inter-Library Loans

Inter-Library Loans are a great way to extend what’s available from BHPL. Direct requesting is now available through MaineCat to all BHPL patrons. Please be sure to search our catalog before requesting from other libraries, as BHPL items are not currently included in the MaineCat catalog.

To request an item you find on MaineCat:

  1. Go to
  2. Find the desired item and click on REQUEST THIS ITEM
  3. Choose BLUE HILL PUBLIC LIBRARY as your home library from the drop down list
  4. Enter your name and 14-digit library card # (with no spaces), click SUBMIT and you’re done!
  5. We will contact you when the item arrives at BHPL

If the item you are searching is not in MaineCat, or if you wish to have us conduct a search for you, please email or call the library at (207) 374-5515.
