The Belmont County District Library makes interlibrary loan services available to patrons for a $3.00 fee. Through interlibrary loan, the library can borrow material it does not own from other cooperating libraries in the U.S. The average amount of time needed to receive an interlibrary loan item is about two (2) weeks.
Generally new books can not be requested.
Copies of magazine articles can also be requested. There is generally no charge for magazine articles. In addition, hundreds of magazines are available through our online research databases, with full-text access. You can access these magazines from your home computer or the reference librarian can email the articles directly to your email account.
