Reciprocal Borrowing

The DeKalb Public Library participates in the PrairieCat library consortium to share resources with many other libraries in Illinois. DeKalb Public Library card holders may borrow materials from any of the other participating libraries, and anyone with a library card from other libraries in PrairieCat may check out items from the DeKalb Public Library.
