WHAT IS ILL??
ILL stands for Intra- Library Loan. The Jordanville Public Library is a member of the Mid-York Library System that is made up of three counties; Herkimer, Madison and Oneida. Because we are a member of the Mid-York system we can borrow books from the other 43 libraries in the system for our patrons. We receive a delivery twice a week on Mondays and Wednesdays. If you place a hold on a book, or any item, through Mid-York, it will be delivered to our library and we will give you a call when it comes in. If you are unsure how to place a hold, click on the “How to Place a Hold” button at the top of the page for a quick tutorial…
Discarded books, DVDs and magazines are placed in the vestibule and are free!
Our staff is always happy to assist you.

Library Assistant: Christopher Sturcke
