Inter-Library Loan Form
PLEASE NOTE: There is a limit of 10 ILL requests checked
out per family at any one time. Items
must be returned before further ILL requests will be taken and processed. A maximum of 30 ILL requests per calendar
month is allowed. Limitations are in
place due to limited staff time, limited space on State transport vans, and the
liability of the library to pay for lost items should a patron fail to return
ILL items Search the BPL catalog before requesting an item via Inter-Library Loan. We only request items the library does not own or multiple copies needed for book groups. Please do not do general requests for a subject; this form is to order a specific title. Should you need assistance with a general subject search, please call 664-9715 and staff will be happy to help you. Please request only what you can reasonably read within a 3 week loan period as multiple renewals require phone calls to each lending library and some libraries do not renew ILL loans.There is a .25 per day/per item fee for overdue ILL materials.
Please fill out the following form completely.
Inter-library loan items are brought to us via-van from all across the state; please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery. Please be aware that new bestsellers may be hard for us to obtain since many libraries do not loan new items for at least one year. We will try our best to fill all ILL requests promptly. We will inform you via phone or e-mail should we not be able to fill your request immediately.
