What is Interlibrary Loan?
If you have a valid Longmont Public Library card and our library does not own the material you want, you may request that we borrow it from another library. Most items are available at no charge, but please indicate the maximum amount you would be willing to pay if there is a charge from the lending library. Microform is more likely to incur a charge.
What can be requested through Interlibrary Loan?
Some newspapers on microfilm may be requested for use in our library. Please specify if you are searching for an obituary, since we may be able to obtain that from the owning library without borrowing the microform. Census data on microform can be obtained for a prepaid fee. Libraries will not lend some items under any circumstances. These include entire magazines, reference books, rare or fragile books, most genealogical items, and local history materials. Some libraries may photocopy these items on a limited basis.
May I request Interlibrary Loans over the telephone?
Yes, call the appropriate desk number. If you have many requests to make, we prefer that you fill out the forms in person or use the online forms.
All Interlibrary Loan items are checked out on your library card using Longmont Public Library's computer system. Due dates on these items are set by the lending library and are not usually renewable. Overdue items will accumulate fines at the current rate of $.10/day for books, audiocassettes, videos, and DVDs.
Please return all items to Longmont Public Library by the due date. Thank you!
