Interlibrary Loan Request Form

Please be sure to search the Westminster Public Library catalog before initiating your request.

How long will it take?

If available, your request should be filled within 1-3 weeks.

Can I order recently published or produced items the library doesn't own?

If the item you are requesting is new (produced or published within the last year), it is unlikely it will be available from another library. Please complete a Request for Purchase form instead.

How will I be notified?

Is there a charge for borrowing Interlibrary Loan materials?

In most cases, the Westminster Public Library pays the costs for this service. Occasionally, with hard-to-obtain items, the lending library may charge a fee, payable by the patron. Average costs in such instances are $15-$20. You will always be given the option to refuse these charges before any request is filled. The library always tries to borrow items for free if possible.

Is there a limit on how many items I can request through Interlibrary Loan?

At this time we ask that you request no more than five items.  After your five items have been returned to the lending library, you can request additional items.
