Fees and Conditions
The Washington County Library charges a $4.00 fee to cover the postage fees associated with shipping the items back to the lending library. If you decide to cancel your request after the item ships from the lending library, the fee is still charged. Borrowing Microfilm usually requires additional postage insurrance fees and can increase the return postage fees by an additional $4.00 to $8.00 dollars per roll.
Most articles from magazines, newspapers, journals and other electronic sources can be transmitted via email for free. However, if the article must be printed for you by the Washington County Library, the cost will be $0.10 per page (1 side) for b&w copies and $.50 for color copies.
Lending libraries may choose to charge additional lending, imaging or copying fees or decide to place lending restrictions or conditions (such as "In library use only") on the item(s) that they choose to lend. Your library will notify you if there are any additional charges or restrictions prior to the shipment of the item(s) and you will be given the option to accept or refuse the fees or restriction. Refusing the fees or conditions will mean that the item will not arrive.
Interlibrary Loan items often carry higher than average replacement costs. Should the item(s) you request become lost, stolen, missing or damaged while in your possession, you will be responsible for the full replacement cost of the item(s) as well as any processing fees charged by the lending library.
Please remember that the Dixie University Library is also available to Washington County residents for the library card fee of $25.00. Contact the Dixie University Library for more information. If you feel you may be ordering more than 6 items a year through the InterLibrary loan program ($24.00 cost), the Dixie University library card may be more economical in the long run.
Note that most libraries are NOT willing to loan "New" items (i.e., items that have been published or added to their collections within the last 9 to 12 months).
