Interlibrary Loan


The CWC Library participates in the Wyoming Libraries Database (WYLD) consortium meaning that we can provide users with access to materials through interlibrary loan from nearly all Wyoming Libraries as well as libraries throughout the United States. Interlibrary Loan is a free service for staff and students—however, late fees, damage, or replacement costs are the users' responsibility and determined by the lending library. Your CWC library card can also be used in person at any Wyoming Library that is part of the WYLD consortium.

  • Guest Internet Access

  • Up to 5 item checkouts: books, CDs, or DVDs with valid Wyoming Library card

  • Database access (library use only unless marked 'Open Access')
