Inter-Library Loans Will Soon Begin Between ACL and BRCC

Augusta County Library 2The Augusta County Library announced a new lending program between the library and Blue Ridge Community College (BRCC) that will begin soon, as announced in this press release:

The Augusta County Library will soon be offering reciprocal borrowing with Houff Library at Blue Ridge Community College in Weyers Cave, Va. Materials from BRCC’s library can be placed on hold to be delivered once a week to Augusta County Library at no charge to our patrons. Waynesboro Public Library and Staunton Public Library will also be participating in this reciprocal borrowing with BRCC.

To request an Interlibrary Loan from BRCC, call the main Fishersville Library at 540-885-3961 or 540-949-6354, or visit the Help Desk to fill out a form. Be sure to have the title and author of the book you are looking for, as well as the publication date, if relevant. To browse BRCC’s library catalog, visit www.brcc.edu/library/library-catalog.

Once the requested materials arrive, patrons will receive a notification call or email. Delivery may take up to one week, and materials can be picked up at our main Fishersville Library as well as our branches. Additionally, Augusta County Library patrons will be able to pick up their arrived holds at Houff Library at BRCC.

If you have any questions, please contact the Augusta County Library at 540-885-3961 or 540-949-6354 or ask@augustacountylibrary.org. For more information about the Augusta County Library and our branches, visit www.augustacountylibrary.org.

Dennis Burnett passed away in October leaving behind not only shocked family and friends but also a shocked community that could not believe the vivacious, fun-loving 49-year-old was gone (see my Remembering Dennis Burnett 1964-2014).

Dennis Burnett. He is gone but through this scholarship he will not be forgotten.

In addition, materials checked out from Houff Library can now be returned to any ACL location. A courier will shuttle the materials to the correct location on a weekly basis.
