Interlibrary Loan

Sump Memorial Library participates in resource sharing through Interlibrary Loan. This service provides access to materials in libraries throughout the United States. We not only borrow from other libraries, but also lend materials through this service.

All requests are placed in a nationwide search and are filled at the discretion of the lending library. Requests may take a few days to several weeks to be processed. 

Please note that most lending libraries will not loan out materials published within the current year of the publishing date. 

Fees & Fines


A fee equivalent to the cost of postage will be charged upon receipt of the requested item. Fines for overdue materials are $1 per day and materials that are not picked up or cancelled will be charged the cost of postage. Lost or damaged materials will be charged according to the fees set by the lending library.
