Requesting Items from Other Michigan Libraries (MeLCat) 

If you are looking for an item that is unavailable at the Troy Public Library, you may be able to request it from another Michigan library.  The Michigan eLibrary catalog (MeLCat) allows you to request items from libraries across the state.  This can now be done directly at Once you have placed your MeLCat request(s), you can track your holds and renew your items online in your Troy Public Library account. 

You may request any MeLCat item that is currently available in any participating Michigan library. The MeL catalog complements the Troy Public Library collection and offers access to unusual and hard-to-find items.

Please contact the library at or 248.524.3534 if you need assistance with MeLCat.
