Interlibrary Loan service (ILL) is available to all current cardholders to request items not available at Longview Public Library from other libraries across the United States.
Questions? Stop by the Front Desk of the Library, or contact the Interlibrary Loan Librarian at (903) 237-1346.
Note: Libraries are under no obligation to lend materials.
Any patron who has a Longview Public Library card, is in good standing and does not have account issues (over-dues, fines, fee, etc.) The request must be placed in the actual name of the library cardholder and the corresponding library card must be presented when picking up the item.
There is a limit of three open requests at one time per patron. An item may be borrowed one time within a three-month period.
This is generally a free service but materials returned late will be assessed a fine of $0.50 per day. Patrons who fail to return materials borrowed on their behalf will be charged the cost of the item as determined by the lending library.
That is determined by the lending library. There are no renewals.
The normal process of an ILL request is approximately 2 to 6 weeks. If we cannot obtain a requested item, you will receive a cancellation notice by email, mail, or phone stating that we could not get it.
The lending library will require that you pay for the damage/loss and could charge a processing fee. Note that your Longview Public Library borrowing privileges will be suspended until all fees/fines are paid.
Materials may be returned to the Longview Public Library. Please keep all paperwork with the item.
You may submit an Interlibrary Loan request online through Texas Navigator. You may also print the Interlibrary Loan request form and fill out the form, and leave it at one of the Service Desks on your next visit. Forms are also available at the Services Desks in the Library.
