Request an Item from Inter-Library Loan
Inter-library Loan: In accordance with Pennsylvania InterLibrary Loan Guidelines -This service is for Emmaus Public Library Home residents ONLY (residents of Emmaus & Macungie Boroughs & Upper Milford Township). ACCESS patrons should submit requests for items through their home library. If you are unsure of your home library please call or stop in to the library.
Most requests can be fulfilled within 10 working days, some may take longer. Recently published items, highly popular items, specialty items (videos, music CDs, magazines, and reference materials) may not be available via inter-library loan.
Items which are not picked up will be charged a $1.00 processing fee per item. Each patron is held responsible for materials loaned on their behalf and are subject to a $1.00 per day overdue for each item (See Library Policies -Appendix A: Fee Schedule). Patrons are limited to 5 requested items a month.
Damaged or lost items are charged to the patron at the replacement cost of the lending library plus processing. Although most items are free to borrow, some items may carry a fee that may be passed on to the patron – please let a staff member know in advance if you are or are not willing to pay such a fee.
Requests for inter-library loan items may be submitted in person or online.
Please note that requests may incur a longer wait time if all required information is not provided at the time of the request.
