The Bastrop Public Library does not charge for Interlibrary loan services;
however, there is a $2.00 charge per item to cover the return mailing cost.
This must be paid at the time of the request.


The process: If you are wanting to read a book that we do not in our collection, you are welcome to request that we obtain a copy of it via interlibrary loan (ILL). You can fill out a form on your own or stop by the Reference Desk, and we can help you fill it out. You will then take it to the Circulation Desk and pay $2 for shipping costs. We will contact another library and have it mailed to Bastrop Public Library. Once we receive it, we will contact you to let you know you can pick it up. You are able to check it out for two weeks; then, you return it to us, and we mail it back to the lending library. 


Limitations: You cannot request a book that is over $50 or that is less than one year old. We only accept ILL requests for books (i.e. not DVDs or CDs).

You may download the ILL form here, but you still need to take it to the Reference Desk to have the information confirmed before turning it in to the Circulation Desk, where you will pay your $2/item.
