Interlibrary Loans

Interlibrary loan service allows customers to borrow library materials not available within the CLEVNET system. Requests can take several weeks to be delivered, with no guarantee of being filled. Lending libraries have their own loan regulations and lending periods, to which borrowing customers are subject, and most Interlibrary loan material cannot be renewed. Each request costs $2, which covers handling and delivery fees and must be paid when the item is picked up. Overdue items will accrue the lending library’s fines, in addition to a $1-a-day fine from Ritter Public Library.
