LVPL may restrict the number of items requested through Inter-Library Loan by an individual patron to ensure fair, equitable, and timely service within the constraints of budget and staffing.

Adult library card holders can make requests. Any overdue materials must be returned prior to request.
If you are looking for a specific title that our library does not own, you may request to borrow it using one of two methods:
Our staff searches libraries within our system to locate a copy of your item. It is sent to LVPL via the United States Postal Service (USPS). LVPL will contact you when the item arrives.
Due to availability, search time, and courier schedules, it may take up to 2 weeks, sometimes even up to 4 weeks, to receive your item.
You will be contacted as soon as we receive the item; it will be held for you for 1 week.
Each lending library sets its own due dates.
There is a return postage charge of $3 for each ILL item, payable when you pick the item up.
If an ILL item is returned past after its due date, the patron must pay all fines and processing costs assessed by the lending library.
Should an ILL item be lost, the patron is responsible for all charges.
