*As of April, 2009, some fees may apply. Due to budgetary challenges, we must now charge $2 per request for entertainment videos or music compact discs. This will be collected at the time the request is made, and is nonrefundable, even if the request is unfilled. We will not charge the $2 fee for non-fiction video and compact disc requests. As always, there also may be fees charged by lending libraries for videos and compact discs that we must get out of state. (You will be notified and given a chance to decline the interlibrary loan if a lending library wishes to charge a fee.)
