Russell County Public Library

Interlibrary Loan Policy

ELIGIBILITY
All Russell County Public Library registered adult borrowers in good standing are eligible to borrow materials through interlibrary loan (ILL). Students are encouraged to process interlibrary loan requests through their school library.

The Library reserves the right to process only three (3) ILL’s for one person at one time.

No individual shall have more than five (5) outstanding requests.

CHARGES
Due to increases in postage rates and reduced funding, the library finds it necessary to require patrons using the ILL service to help pay the cost of mailing the book back to the lending library. This assessed cost will be $3.00 per book.

CIRCULATION
When the lending library specifies a precise date due, Russell County Public Library will require return of the materials to Russell County Public Library five (5) days prior to the lending library’s date due.

Items obtained by ILL must be picked up within five (5) days of the user being notified of the ILL’s availability.

Patrons who do not claim materials borrowed for them will be assessed a fine of $5.00 for each unclaimed item.

OVERDUES
Overdue fines are charged at the rate of $1.00 per day, per item.

Russell County Public Library reserves the right to suspend a borrower’s ILL privileges indefinitely for repeated failure to comply with ILL policies.

REPLACEMENT OF LOST AND DAMAGED MATERIAL
The patron assumes all responsibility for the care of ILL materials while it is in his/her possession.

The patron is responsible for paying the charges assessed by the lending library for lost or damaged material. Failure to make the required compensation will result in suspension of all borrowing privileges until the debt has been settled in full.
