Important Information About Your Request
Before requesting any material through Interlibrary Loan, check the Longview Public Library Catalog to make sure that the material is not owned by Longview Public Library. We cannot request items through Interlibrary Loan that are owned by Longview Public Library even if our copy is Reference only.
To request material through Interlibrary Loan, you must have a valid Longview Public Library card and you must sign a one-time statement agreeing to accept responsibility for:
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 at one of the Service Desks where you return all other Longview Public Library items. 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.
