How do I get a book from another library?

Holds may be placed on many titles owned throughout the state of Georgia in the PINES network. Videos, audiocassettes, new books, current bestsellers, software, microforms, CD's, or DVDs may not be placed on hold unless owned by the Athens Regional Library System. There is no fee for placing holds in PINES. Holds can be placed online using PINES or by calling your library.

Interlibrary Loan(ILL) services are available to Athens Regional Library System patrons who wish to obtain library materials which are not in the library's own collections or unavailable through PINES. Fees as charged by the lending institutions will be applied including service fees, insurance, mailing, handling or photocopying charges.
