Normally, there is no fee for an interlibrary loan. On rare occasions, another library may charge a fee but the Orange Public Library will contact you before advancing with the loan in order to get your permission.
In most cases, the turnaround time for an interlibrary loan is one to two weeks; however, the time depends upon the difficulty of locating an available copy of the item and the location of the lending library. If there is a deadline by which the item is needed, please notify the Orange Public Library staff at the time of submitting the request.
When the Orange Public Library receives an interlibrary loan it also receives a due date. Usually, you may borrow the items for two weeks but sometimes the lending library sets a shorter time frame. In some cases, an item may be renewed. If you wish to renew your loan, please contact the reference librarian three days in advance of the due date on your item. The reference librarian will request a renewal, which may or may not be granted.
Occasionally, items will arrive with a restriction of "In Building-Use Only." This means that the item cannot leave the Orange Public Library building. The lending library sets the policy and the Orange Public Library must abide by it.
