"I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess." H. P. Lovecraft
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.
