LINK+ (Link Plus) is a union catalog of over 9 million unique books from participating libraries throughout California and Nevada including the Lodi Public Library.
How It Works
Patrons from member libraries electronically request an item not available in their own library and it is delivered to them for check out. We can order the item for you in the library or you can go to the LINK+ site online and order for yourself. To go to the LINK+ site online: http://linkencore.iii.com. Once you have your item you can check status of your account or renew your item at http://lnkss.iii.com/patroninfo
Books and media may be borrowed if they are listed as available in the union catalog. An item may arrive at the requestor’s library in a week. Books and some media will be held for up to 10 days. There is a limit of 10 items per borrower.
The loan period for books and some media is 21 days with one 21 day renewal. You can log in to your own account on the LINK+ site to review due dates or to renew your LINK+ item(s). You can also renew your items at the circulation desk.
There is no charge to request or borrow LINK+ materials, however, a $1 restocking fee will be charged for material not picked up, there will be a $1 a day late fee accessed on overdue items, and there is a $115 charge for lost items.
It may take up to 24 hours before you are able to request a hold via the Link+ system after a card is made/updated. Thank you for your patience.
