Interlibrary Loan

The Board of Library Trustees recently reviewed and updated our interlibrary loan policy. Following is a summary of these changes, and the new policy is attached for your convenience.

Interlibrary Loan Policies

InterLibrary Loans are items that we cannot get from another SPLASH Library or through Link+.

  • Items requested starting October 16, 2017, will have a $5.00 charge attached to them upon arrival in the library.
  • If a renewal is requested, the item must be returned to the Benicia Library pending approval by the owning library.
  • The item is due by the original due date, pending the renewal. Items must be returned to avoid late fees.
  • A maximum of two (1) renewal request is allowed per item, if approved by the lending library.
  • Overdue interlibrary loan items must be returned prior to new requests being processed.
  • Charges incurred for lost items from the lending library will be placed on the patron’s account.
  • Damaged items will be charged the full replacement cost.
  • Interlibrary loan items may be subject to immediate recall.
  • Failure to return items by the due date, may result in a suspension or loss of interlibrary loan privileges for the patron.
