Interlibrary Loan Policy


The Palmview Municipal Library borrows and lends out library material through Interlibrary Loan thus enhancing and extending the resources available to its users. Because the library cannot purchase or subscribe to every useful resource, Interlibrary Loan is an essential part of its mission to meet the information needs of the community.

To Make an Interlibrary Loan Request:

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) provides access for library patrons to books not currently available at this library and provides books from our collection to all eligible requesting libraries. Interlibrary Loan will not obtain books for people who have outstanding obligations to the library such as overdue fines, lost book fees, or overdue material.

Making a Request:

When filling out the Interlibrary Loan Request Form, it is important that you fill out all of the information completely and legibly. All requests are processed as quickly as possible. All orders are dependent on the lending library’s manpower and policies.


The only material(s) borrowed from, or loaned to, other libraries are books- no audiovisual materials. Bestsellers, current released, or required summer reading will not be loaned nor requested from other libraries.

Number of Items:

Patrons are limited to two (2) ILL requests per check out period.

Pick Up and Return of Materials:

Interlibrary Loan material must be picked up at the Circulation Desk. Return books borrowed through Interlibrary Loan to the Circulation Desk or to the book drop box.


A patron is allowed to renew Interlibrary Loan book(s) if the owning library grants permission.

Fee for books:

Overdue charges apply for Interlibrary Loan books. The charges for lost Interlibrary Loan book(s) and processing fee are up to the discretion of the lending institution.
