Request an Item


This form is to request items we do not own and items that are not available in MEL.

Therefore, please use the online catalog to reserve items we own and use MEL's catalog to request interlibrary loans.

To reserve Ransom items, go to Ransom's online catalog, search for the item, open the catalog record, click the "Reserve" tab, and enter your library card number as the username and password.

To order MEL items, go to the MEL catalog, search for the item, open the catalog record, click "Get this for Me," select Ransom District Library, and enter your name and library card number.

Request for New Material

The library reserves the right to select materials that suit the needs of the community. Materials requested may be deemed unsuitable for the library collection. In that case, every effort will be made to provide the item to you through the Interlibrary Loan (MelCat) system.

Materials will be automatically reserved for you if you submit a request on this form. You will receive a phone call when the item is ready for pickup or if it is unavailable.

Please note that we cannot honor requests from people who do not have active Ransom Library accounts.

(Items designed with an "*" are optional)

Next: First choose one format, then write your request in the following spaces. Please give as much information as you have. If you have more than one request, please use a new form for each request.
