Hi Timothy. Unfortunately, physical books are not available via ILL during this public health crisis. Details about what services are prohibited and permitted can be found here on this FAQ page from the Pennsylvania Department of Education's Office of Commonwealth Libraries: https://www.statelibrary.pa.gov/Covid-19/Pages/FAQ.aspx
