What is LINK+ 

LINK+ is a cooperative system between a number of public and academic libraries in California and Nevada.

How Does LINK+ Work 

If a book is unavailable or not owned by the Santa Clara City Library, you can attempt to request it through LINK+ if a partner library has it available.

Requests are generally fulfilled within 4 business days.

LINK+ requests can be picked up from the Customer Service desk.

LINK+ items should be returned to the Customer Service desk.

Limits and Fines

LINK+ books can be checked out for 3 weeks with the possibility for one additional 3-week renewal. To renew, you must do so within 3 days of the due date.

Daily late fees are $1 and if the book is lost or damaged, it is $115.

Other Information

At select LINK+ libraries, you may be able to borrow material using your Santa Clara City Library card. Should you want to use this service, please check with that library ahead of your visit to see if they participate in the program and make yourself aware of their rules of conduct.

If you have any questions about LINK+, give us a call at 408-615-2970. You can also visit the help section on the LINK+ website for more information.
