The Interlibray Loan service is for Allentown Public Library resident cardholders only; it is not intended for school or college assignments. The average request is fulfilled within 10 days, but some requests can take longer.
Books published within the last 12 months are not available for interlibrary loan.
Loan periods and renewals are determined by the lending library. Renewals may be requested prior to the due date in person at the reference desk, by phone (610-820-2400 x145), or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Borrowers are responsible for material and are subject to overdue charges of $0.20 per day. Damaged or lost items must be paid for at the cost charged by the lending library.
Although most interlibrary loan transactions are free to the user, a limited number of lending libraries may charge a fee which will be passed on to the borrower. You may stipulate in advance whether you are willing to pay a fee, and how much.
