Inter-Library Loans / Purchase Requests

Casey Cardinia Libraries is part of the Libraries Victoria Consortium, a co-operative network of libraries across Victoria.  The Libraries Victoria Consortium gives you free access to more than 3 million items across 150 library branches in these states.  Best of all, you can request these items for free.

If you can’t find the item you want in the library catalogue (remember to also check the results under the “All Swift Libraries” tab), you can request that we purchase it, or obtain it for you on inter-library loan.


  • We can only purchase items that are:
    • requested by a CCL member
    • still in publication (usually no more than two years old)
    • DVDs/CDs that have been released and are available in Australia
    • suitable for our collection
    • Make a Suggestion for purchase


  • Any items requested via inter-library loan will incur a charge:
