Library Catalog

For materials that are already part of The Colony Public Library's collection, please visit the library's online catalog or contact the Reference Desk at 972-625-1900 ext. 3 to place an item on reserve.

Request to Add an Item to the collection

Request a specific item be added to TCPL's public collection. Please note requests are subject to approval by the purchasing Librarian, based on the Library's collection policy for that area. Not all requests can be filled. Approved requests may take several months to become available for check out. 

If you need an item sooner, please contact the Reference Desk at 972-625-1900 ext. 3 to discuss its availability at other area libraries. 

Interlibrary Loan

Through participation in an Interlibrary Loan network including academic, public and special libraries, TCPL may be able to borrow materials for you from other libraries throughout the country if that item is unavailable at TCPL. Be aware that TCPL is subject to the borrowing policies of the original loaning library. Some materials may take several weeks to arrive. 

*ILL requests must be submitted via the online ILL form or in-person at the Library's Reference Desk. Interlibrary Loan requests may not be made over the phone. For more information on interlibrary loan, please contact Technical Services Librarian, Bailey Cooper.
