Library Services

Library Instruction, Reference, and Readers’ Advisory

Staff are available to assist you in meeting your information needs with library collections and other library resources. Additionally, staff may offer advice for selecting reading materials according to your preferences or needs.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is the borrowing and lending of materials between libraries to supplement collections. It may be used to borrow materials that are not available within the collections of the eiNetwork’s participating libraries, which include Allegheny County Library Association libraries and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, and is frequently used for the purposes of research.

Library of Accessible Media for Pennsylvanians (LAMP)

The Library of Accessible Media for Pennsylvanians offers people who cannot access the printed word a way to restore their love of reading by shipping free materials in accessible formats like braille, audio, described movies and large print directly to patrons across Pennsylvania. In addition to physical content, LAMP also provides digital access to downloadable audio or braille to hundreds of thousands of titles. If you cannot read standard print due to blindness, a visual disability or because you can’t hold a book or turn pages or, if you have a reading disability such as dyslexia – then this service is for you. We can assist you with and certify your application at Wilkinsburg Public Library.
