Patron Borrowing Requirements:

Postage Fees:  There will be a minimum charge of $2.00 for each request for return postage fee to lending library via the US Postal Service.

  1. A maximum of 2 requests a month.  A request is considered active from the time it is initiated until three days after the material is returned.
  2. The library is unable to borrow items published in the current calendar year.
  3. The library cannot borrow audio, books on CD or DVDs.
  4. The library is unable to borrow bound periodicals (magazines), but will request photocopies if available on microfilm.
  5. ILL cannot borrow items inside a year of their publication date.
  6. Patrons must have been a patron of our library for the year preceding the Interlibrary Loan request, and have a library account with no current over dues or fines. The person making the requests also cannot have a family member who has over dues or fines. The patron also must have no record of staff having to mail more than one late notice or one reminder phone call asking for return of late materials.
  7. I understand materials must be returned by their due date to avoid late charges and that inter-library loan items are not renewable.
  8. Copyright laws apply to all inter-library loans.

New Fee Policy

Postage Fees:  There will be a minimum charge of $2.00 for each item shipped via the US Postal Service.  The fee is payable at the time the request is made. If the ILL is unavailable, staff will notify the patron making the request to pick up their postage fee on their next library visit.
