Interlibrary Loan – Can’t find the movie you want at Pomfret? You can use our Interlibrary Loan service to order DVDs from other libraries in CT. Just follow our directions for placing an ILL request. Make the search a little easier by going to Advanced Search > Material Type > check Visual Materials in the Media Type column > and Submit. Not all movies listed in the statewide catalog are available as ILLs as some public libraries limit their DVD loans to their own residents, but we will do our best to get your movie for you!
