Items are loaned by libraries in the United States.  Circulation rules, including loan periods and use of materials, are set by the lending library.  Patrons will be held responsible for any charges incurred for damaged or lost items set by the lending library.

Patrons agree to pay postage to receive the materials.  The lending library may request additional charges for service fees, insurance, etc.  The patron will be informed of these possible costs before any item is sent.

Patrons will be limited to four (4) active requests at any given time;

Only one copy of a specific title may be requested / borrowed at a time;

Ill material(s) will be returned to the lending library if not checked out within seven (7) days of notification;

Circulation restrictions imposed by the lending library apply to ILL materials;

To ­­­­initiate the inter-library loan process, either call or come into the library and a librarian will collect information from the patron so library can request the item

Patrons must have their valid  library card to check out these materials.  Most libraries will not loan materials published or produced within the last 12 months for the ILL program;
