LOCATING ITEMS

The Mullan Public Library offers a variety of print and nonprint materials to community and CIN patrons of all ages and interests. Most materials are also available to other network libraries through the ILL (Interlibrary Loan) service.  In addition to comprehensive collections of adult and children's fiction/nonfiction, patrons may also charge DVDs, VHS videotapes, books on tape, and CDs.  Mullan offers an impressive Idaho History collection, and most items can be checked out. 

If you can't find the materials you are looking for, you can try to find them at another library through the ILL (Interlibrary Loan) service available through the Cooperative Information Services (CIN) network.  You can search for the item and place the hold yourself, using the link below, or you can ask your librarian for help.  If the items are available, they can usually be picked up in Mullan within 5 to 10 days. 

Books, books on tape, DVDs, VHS videotapes, and CDs from the Mullan Public Library are also available to other network libraries through the ILL (Interlibrary Loan) service available through the CIN network.
