Inter-Library Loan (ILL)

After you have been an established active patron in good standing for three (3) months, you may apply for an interlibrary loan (ILL). Call or stop by to fill out a small request form.


There is no charge for the first three books each fiscal year (October - September). Afterward, we ask for a $3.00 donation per book for postage. Requested books must be published over 6 months or more for lenders to release the items to us.  You may request two books at a time. Audiobooks are also available to ILL.

Library In a Box

In an effort to reach as wide an audience as possible, the Boundary County Library created Library in a Box. We have dispersed boxes of free books throughout the county. The rules are simple: Take one, bring it back whenever, pick another. We frequently re-stock the boxes, so there is no pressure to return the books right away.

Current Library in a Box Locations include: 

  • Bonners Ferry Victim Services

  • The Boundary County Food Bank

  • Porthill Mercantile

  • Elk Mountain Farms

  • Good Grief Grill & Grocery

  • Panhandle Laundry
