Request Materials

Borrowing from Central Dakota Library Network Libraries



The majority of Bismarck Public Library’s items can be requested to be on hold for you at the library through our online library catalog, or over the phone at 355-1480. Our library catalog shows items from all CDLN locations which may be requested to be delivered to the Bismarck Public Library. You can request as many as 15 items on one account at a time.

If you are requesting Bismarck Public Library items that are checked in, expect to wait at least 24 hours for those items to be retrieved and ready for the hold shelf.
