Reference collections are for in-library use only and may not be checked out. ARTICLE 4. INTERLIBRARY LOAN Section 4.01 Interlibrary Loan Service When a resident cardholder of the Warren-Newport Public Library District (WNPLD) requests material that is not available at WNPL, we ask other libraries to provide it. This service is called interlibrary loan. Section 4.02 Loan Period and Borrowing Privileges The circulation period of materials borrowed through interlibrary loan is determined by the lending library, not by WNPLD. If any library repeatedly does not return materials borrowed through interlibrary loan until after the due date, that library can lose the privilege of borrowing materials in that way for any of its patrons. It is crucial, therefore, that materials borrowed through interlibrary loan be returned in a timely manner. Any patron who repeatedly fails to return interlibrary loan materials on time may lose the privilege of borrowing materials through interlibrary loan. Policy 3020 Circulation Page 2 of 3 ARTICLE 5. RESERVING MATERIALS Section 5.01 Reserves and Notifications When an eligible item in the circulating collection of WNPLD is not immediately available to check out, a patron may reserve the item. When the reserved item is available for the patron who has placed the reserve, the Library will notify the patron. When the Library notifies the patron via telephone, the specific title of the material will not be stated to anyone other than the patron who placed the reserve. If the patron is not available when the Library calls, a message stating only that an item the patron requested is available will be left. The Library will leave only one message regarding the availability of a specific item. Relay of the message to the appropriate person in the household and prompt pick-up of the material are the responsibilities of the patron. Section 5.02 Hold Period for Reserve Material The date of the message will be noted, and the material will be held for the patron for a period of six (6) days. If the patron does not pick up the material within six (6) days, the reserve will be cancelled and the material will be placed back into general circulation, unless one or more other patrons have reserved the material. If another patron is waiting for the material, the next patron on the list will be notified that the item is available. Section 5.03 Reserve Limits The maximum number of items that a WNPL cardholder may have on reserve at any one time on a WNPLD card is forty (40). Section 5.04 Residency Only holders of WNPLD cards may place reserves on library materials. Section 5.05 Non-reservable Materials Hot Picks books, Hot Flicks DVD/Blu-ray, and umbrellas may not be reserved. Section 5.06 Bookmobile Collection Materials labeled as NEW in the Bookmobile Collection may not be reserved. Once the material is no longer designated as NEW, it may be reserved.
