Interlibrary Loan Request

Interlibrary Loan Rules

Can’t find what you need? Use our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service to order materials from other libraries across the country.

  • You must have an Orem Library card to use ILL.
  • Before making your ILL request, please be aware that you will be responsible for a postage fee for each item the library receives in your behalf. This fee typically ranges from $2 to $5 depending upon the weight of the item. In certain circumstances (i.e. the book appears to be worth more than $50 or the lending library requests an insured return), there may be an additional shipping insurance fee.
  • Renewals, when available, should be requested one week prior to the due date. Some libraries will not allow items to be renewed.
  • Overdue fees for ILL items are $1 per day. The loaning library may also impose overdue charges. It is especially important to return ILL items on time so that our library does not lose its loaning privileges with other libraries. Items are not always available because they may belong to non-circulating collections or non-supplier libraries. Audio-visual items are normally not available.

Items whose primary content or purpose is deemed by the Orem Library’s collection development staff or Library Advisory Commission to be pornographic (as defined by the Utah State Code, Title 76-10-1203) will not be made available through ILL.
