If the library doesn't have an item you want, you can place an Interloan request and we will attempt to obtain it from another library for you.
Anyone with a current Wanganui District Library membership card.
Books, music CDs (mainly classical), music scores, photocopies of magazine/journal articles (in accordance with the Copyright Act), theses, some audio-visual material and car manuals.
Please check our catalogue first to ensure we don’t have the item already:
Or browse other libraries’ catalogues at: http://nzlc.natlib.govt.nz
There is a $2 administration fee (please note that this charge applies whether or not the Interloan is successful), then when your Interloan arrives, depending on the type of library we obtained it from, a further $5 or $15 fee will apply per item.
Requests for non-urgent Interloans can generally be supplied within a week provided the item is on the shelf at a library we have requested it from. National Library items which are 'on the shelf'; are almost always here within the week. If the item is already on loan at any library, we can place a reserve on it, but then supply of the item can take several weeks or longer.
Your Interloan will be issued to you for 28 days - a week longer than the normal loan period. Interloan items cannot be renewed.
We will phone you when your item arrives – please supply a day-time phone number or if you prefer, provide a current email address and indicate that that is your preferred method of notification.
Your item will be held for you at the central issue desk, the Gonville Café Library or the Mobile Library branch. Please present your library card and your item will be issued to you.
