Link+ is a borrowing program among many California academic and public libraries — see Link+ Member Libraries. Link+ lets you request items from another library that are not available at the King Library or San José Public Library (SJPL) Branches.
- With a Library Card, you may use Link+ to request items if you have no fines or overdue items.
- You may request books, music scores and government documents through Link+.
- You cannot request media and other kinds of materials.
- Information for Distance Learners.
Visiting Patron Program
Many institutions that are members of Link+ participate in its Visiting Patron program.
This program lets you — as a patron from a Link+ library — use your library card in person at another Link+ library. You check out library items through Link+ and borrow them for the same time period as a Link+ loan.
Select the following link for a list of which Link+ libraries participate or do not participate in the Link+ Visiting Patron program.
Note: When visiting another library that participates in the program, please have both your library card and ID present at the time of checkout.
