Borrow from other libraries

If you are searching our Library Catalog, and see that we don't have an item, you'll be able to link to MELCAT (Michigan Electronic Library) to see if another library in Michigan has the item available.

You can also add to your borrowing power, by getting a MI Library sticker on your OneCard.
TIP: if you're not a resident of Detroit, one place you can use your MI Library card, is the Detroit Public Library.
They have rich Detroit resources, including the historical Burton Collection.
