Inter-Library Loans

The Worthen Library is proud to join the Vermont Library Courier System. We get a delivery of inter-library loan requests every Wednesday, so if we do not own an item that you are interested in we will be thrilled to try and borrow from another Vermont library. Only Worthen Library patrons in good standing may request a loan.  Many libraries are reluctant to send new/very popular books so there may be a waiting period involved.

Lending libraries have their own loan periods/due dates. It may be possible to renew and it may not, and this will be up to the lending library also. It is important that a patron pick up the item as soon as possible since their clock will be ticking. Three failures to pick up a book at all will result in a termination of ILL privileges for 6 months.

Please call (372-6209) or email us ( to place a request.
