Any patron may request to borrow materials not available in the Library’s collection. The Library will promptly attempt to borrow first from any lending library inside the state, but, if the material is not available in-state, then from outside the state, except that non-print materials will not be requested from out-of-state. The Library will attempt to borrow from libraries that do not charge fees, and will request notification of fees from lending libraries before materials are shipped. When fees are unavoidable, patrons will be given the option of paying the fees or canceling the requests.
Materials obtained through InterLibrary Loan are lent to Newbury Public Library’s patrons for two weeks. Renewals may be possible within the loan periods granted by lending libraries. The Library will restrict materials to in-house use if so requested by lending libraries. p>
