There are many options available.
- If another public library in the area owns the title, you may be able to borrow it by going to that library and using your reciprocal borrower privileges, http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/library/accountservices/cardelgb.htm#reciprocal.
- We may be able to locate the desired book from another library using interlibrary loan, http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/library/accountservices/illservice.htm.
- Also, Fairfax County Public Library has a “walk-in” borrowing agreement with the George Mason University libraries that allows our customers to borrow directly. Visit your library branch to initiate this request as there is paperwork required before you visit the university.
- Finally, you may recommend the library purchase the title, http://fcplcat.fairfaxcounty.gov/uhtbin/cgisirsi/0/0/0/63/1129/X/BLASTOFF.
