Interlibrary loans (ILL)

Interlibrary Loan is the process of obtaining materials from other libraries throughout the country. This service is available with the following restrictions and available to library patrons over the age of 18 that reside in the County of Culpeper. The libraries of surrounding counties provide ILL services for the residents of those counties. Patrons requesting ILL's must provide a valid phone number at which they may be reached, as the lending library has the right to issue a recall on an item at any time. A patron may request not more than three interlibrary loan items at a time. Interlibrary loan service is free, but the patron may be charged for any shipping fees or any other charges that the normal fourth class library rate postage does not cover. Patrons will be charged $1.00 per day up to a maximum of $10.00 for overdue Interlibrary Loans.
