If the Crawfordsville District Public Library does not own the book or have the article that you need, we can attempt to borrow it from another library through our Interlibrary Loan service.
The library endorses the principles relating to interlibrary loan included in the Indiana Library Resource Sharing Policy, the ALA Interlibrary Loan Code, the U.S. Copyright Law and U.S. Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyrighted Works Guidelines, and federal and state laws governing confidentiality of records.
This service is offered to all patrons holding a valid library card from the Crawfordsville District Public Library (does not include RB cards). You must have no outstanding fees or overdue items. Patrons must be 18 or older to request an interlibrary loan. Those under 18 can also request an interlibrary loan if they have parental permission.
Most loans can be received within 10-14 days. You will be informed as soon as possible if a loan can't be made for some reason.
The average loan period is 2 weeks or longer, depending on the wishes of the loaning institution. The late fee for an ILL item is 50 cents per day.
The service is free; this cost is underwritten by the Friends of the Library. If the lending library specifies that it requires costs for photocopies or mailing a particular requested item, patrons will be consulted before materials are borrowed.
You may request items not owned by the Crawfordsville District Public Library or items missing from the library's collection. You may not request items owned by the library.
You are limited to 10 requests at a time.
