As the Area Reference and Resource
Center (ARRC) for the Northeastern Maine Library District (NMLD),
the Bangor Public Library wants to help you get the right book to
the right person at the right time. If the book is in our Library
when we receive your request, we will send it within 24 hours of the
receipt of your request.
hope that this outline will answer questions you may have about this
service. If you have other questions, please call.
The easiest way is to have your patron request materials through
Maine Cat. If you aren't
a member of Maine InfoNet, or, if you need to borrow another way,
here is how you can ask the Bangor Public Library for titles.
When requesting materials, please include as much information and
detail as possible. There are many ways to request materials or
information from your ARRC:
Please put ILL in the subject line and include your Library’s
name and address in the body of each request. E-mail sometimes gets
forwarded and always gets printed, so without your "signature" we
may lose who is making the request.
2. SNAIL MAIL
Please print or write legibly. If you are using a sheet of paper
(you may use postcards or forms), limit the number of titles on each
sheet to six. (You may send as many sheets at a time as you wish).
We use these sheets to search for your books. Having a long list of
requests on one sheet slows down our searching procedures.
