Fines are charged for overdue materials based upon the current fee schedule.
Items not owned by the Albany Public Library may be requested from another institution by submitting an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request.
For each ILL request, there is a nonrefundable $3.00 fee. Although the Library will make every effort to fill your request, there is no guarantee that it will be possible to do so. Please allow 1 to 3 weeks for requests to be filled.
You must have an Albany Public Library card to request an item through Interlibrary Loan. Passport, Linn Library Consortium, GAPS cardholders are not eligible for ILL
For more information, or to submit an ILL request, please visit the Reference desk or call 541-917-7582.
