INTERLIBRARY LOANS
The Ronceverte Public Library participates in an Interlibrary Loan service in order to obtain materials not available in our collection. This service depends on the generosity of public and academic libraries across the state. For security reasons interlibrary loan materials must be signed out from the circulation desk.

In order to receive this privilege the borrower agrees to:

  1. Accept responsibility for materials between signing out and signing in. This includes cost of damage to or loss of borrowed item.
     

  2. Return the materials by the date due marked on the interlibrary loan slip. Not returning materials to the lending library on time may jeopardize our ability to continue receiving interlibrary loan services from that library. Please make every effort to return this material by the due date.
