INTER LIBRARY LOAN

The Eastern Shore Regional Library operates a delivery system for the libraries on the Shore and acts as a liaison for the Maryland Interlibrary Loan Office. The Maryland Interlibrary Loan Organization (MILO) is a network of public, academic, school and special libraries throughout the state of Maryland. Through close cooperation, customers can get books, magazines, newspapers and other resources from over 700 libraries in the state.
Marina (Interlibrary Loan), a service of MILO, is a free, statewide interlibrary loan system for requesting books from other libraries. Marina is accessible through each library's web site and a library card is needed.
