INTERLIBRARY LOAN POLICY
Interlibrary loan requests: Materials from the collections of other public, academic, and special libraries may be borrowed through Interlibrary Loan. Patrons may request that the library attempt to locate books or copies of journal or periodical articles that are not available in the City of Denison Public Library.
Libraries do not lend rare or fragile items, audio-visual materials, or items in high demand. Most libraries do not lend genealogy, microfilm or items designated as reference in their catalog. Libraries are under no obligation to lend materials.
There is a limit of five open requests at one time per patron. An item may be borrowed one time within a three-month period.
Interlibrary loan materials cannot be renewed and those materials returned late with be assessed a fine of $1.00 per day. Patrons who fail to return materials borrowed on their behalf will be charged the cost of the item (as determined by the lending library), plus a $25.00 processing fee. Patrons who request an item through interlibrary loan and fail to pick it up after notification by the library will be assessed a fee of $1.00 for each unclaimed title. For items that must be returned to another library (e.g., books or AV materials) the patron is responsible for the postage.
