Circulation - Interlibrary Loan
When patrons want material that is not available within the Hope Welty Public Library, we ask other agencies to provide it. This is the process of interlibrary loan. Materials borrowed through interlibrary loan have a circulation period which is determined by the lending library, not the Hope Welty Public Library. We are happy to borrow materials from other libraries for you, but ask that you respect the date by which those materials must be returned to their home libraries. When the Hope Welty Public Library is lax in returning materials borrowed through interlibrary loan, the library can lose the privilege of borrowing materials in that way for any of its patrons. It is crucial, therefore, that materails borrowed through interlibrary loan be returned in a timely manner. Habitual failure to do so may result in indivial loss of the privilege in order to preserve the privilege for other library patrons.
