Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)             

Borrowing:  Patrons must have a Library card ‘in good standing’ to ILL any materials from libraries outside of the Southern Tier Library System.  (See Section 4.2)   No more than 3 items may be requested at one time.  All ILL materials should be picked up promptly as loan periods are set by the lending Library and may be short.  ILL materials awaiting patron pickup are kept at the circulation desk for 1 week.   If an item is not picked up within 1 week, it is returned to the lending Library, and the patron is charged a $1.00 non-pickup fine.

ILL materials may be checked out by the person who requested the ILL, with or without their card if staff can verify their identity, or by another person who has the requester’s Library card in hand.

The Library will not request through ILL the following:  items available from Southern Tier Library System member libraries, items from out of system libraries that are less than one year old, books on CD and DVD’s.
