Use Interlibrary Loan to request books that are not available at the Columbus County Public Library either because the title is not owned by the library or the title is long overdue or missing. Interlibrary Loan is not required for books that are listed as Held, Pending or In Transit.
1) We can only borrow books that have been published for at least 6 months and are not owned by our system. Most books presented on TV talk shows have not yet been published. 2) It takes from 5 days to three weeks to receive books through OCLC. 3) There is a $4.00 pick up fee once the book arrives and a $5.00 fee if the book is not picked up.
