To request an item through interlibrary loan:

  • A current library card is required.
    • The patron’s card should be in good standing (no fees over $10.00)
      • Cost: $2.00, non-refundable for each interlibrary loan request, to be paid at the time of checkout.
      • Once the item arrives, the patron is responsible for the fee.
      • There is no guarantee an item will be retrieved.
      • Occasionally, an additional fee is charged by the lending library for photocopying, insurance, etc.
      • The patron will be notified prior to the item being shipped if they owe an additional amount.

  • Author and title for each item is required. 
  • An item must be at least 1 year old.
  • REQUIRED: Full name, library card number, and phone number.
  • Renewals must be requested via the ILL desk, (910) 798-6359, five days prior to the due date of the item.
    • The lending libraries determine the due date and they may deny renewal.
  • If more than one item is requested at a time, more than likely the items will arrive at different times.
  • Arrival times cannot be guaranteed, varying from one week to a month.
  • The fee for overdue ILL books is .20 cents per day.
  • Any charge from a lending library will be passed on to the customer.
  • Some restrictions may apply such as no renewal or in-library use.
