Borrow from another library
You can come into the library or over the phone to make a request and you need a Van Horne library card number. We ask a $3.00 (three dollar) donation for each request to help defray the cost of shipping. Materials on inter-library loan can be kept for one month, we can ask for a renewal but that is up to the lending library. If books are returned late there may be a fine incurred from the lending library, rates vary. There is no consequence for not picking up an item but if this were to happen twice we would need the $3.00 (three dollar) donation in advance of ordering from then on.
This is a great service because not every library can have every book, so you don't have to think you cannot read a particular book. In the event that what you are asking for could be a very old edition, we may not be able to get it, but it is worth trying.
