Interlibrary loans have been suspended during COVID-19 pandemic measures in the State of Michigan. As of late May, 2020, lending will likely be suspended through the end of summer. Thank you for your patience as we move through this unusual time!

Interlibrary Loans through Michigan’s MeLCat statewide system gives access to over 42 million items owned by over 400 Michigan Libraries

MeLCat allows registered customers at participating libraries to search for, locate and request materials from a comprehensive catalog that includes the holding of libraries around the state. Items can be delivered to the Ludington Library or Scottville Library, usually within a few days. Available from the libraries or from your home, business or schools at, this service provides access to millions of items, including valuable local history materials, non-book items such as DVDs and music CDs, and lots more.

All you need is your Mason County District Library card registration number. For help with MeLCat, and with ordering materials, call (231) 843-8465.
