Starting June 30, the State of Connecticut will shut down the statewide online inter-library loan network known as REQUEST. Brooklyn Public Library's access to REQUEST will end on June 26. Despite this discontinuity, we will do our best our best to continue to find items that you might want from other libraries, however, it is likely that processing times for InterLibrary loans will take longer this summer. All libraries in CT are affected similarly by this and, since this issue may persist for the next few months, we trust in your patience and understanding while we work on these InterLibrary loan requests. The good news is that this a temporary shutdown as the State migrates the data to a new database system. The State plans to implement the new online system in the fall. We will keep you informed of updates as we, ourselves, learn of them.
