In general the library services include lending of library materials and use of the library services. These services include the following.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services
ILL Services allow you to obtain print materials, such as books and magazine articles, as well as microfilm of old newspapers, that are not owned within the Westchester Library System.
WLS does not charge for ILL Services, however certain lending institutions have loan policies that include charging fees or on-site-use-only restrictions. If they become our only options, you will be contacted for permission to proceed. You can cancel a request if you decline to cover the necessary charges or do not want to use the material in the library.
The average time to obtain the materials is one to four weeks. This depends on availability of the materials requested, their location, type of delivery service, and staff situation of the owning libraries. Some obscure materials may also take longer to obtain.
Homebound Service @ Your Library
Warner is now offering service to the homebound. If you are unable to leave your home due to illness or disability and would like a library staff member or volunteer to bring library materials to you, please contact the Reference Desk at 631 – 7734. As a homebound patron, you may borrow any Warner Library owned materials for one month. The Reference Librarian will help you select some books, music or films for you to enjoy.
Newspaper Articles & Magazine Stories, and even Literary Criticism
The Westchester Library System makes available from its web site databases that provide access to over 2000 periodicals, many of which offer full text versions of articles of general interest and specific subject areas. Magazine and newspaper databases and online encyclopedias for adults and children are accessible.
