Interlibrary Loans

Requests from another library for any item we may not have in our collection may be made at any of the Vermilion Parish Library Branches or by phone or email. The patron must have a library card for 90 days and the patron’s card must in good standing for a minimum of ninety (90) days, no fines and accurate information.

This is a free service. However if there are late fees and/or damage fees, the patron is responsible for the fees charged by the lending library. If the patron is late returning the item or damages the item, their account will be blocked until the items have been returned and all fees are paid in full. Generally, interlibrary loan items cannot be renewed. If interlibrary loan materials are not returned the lending libraries bill the borrowing library for the replacement fee. This replacement fee is the patron’s responsibility. The patron’s account is blocked from all usage including computer use until the fee is paid in full.
