Local histories, newspapers, cemetery records, microfilm, periodicals, family histories, obituaries, and Kentucky history books may be used in the genealogy area. They are non-circulating, except through interlibrary loan to other libraries for in-library use only. To preserve the books, there will be no eating or drinking in the genealogy area. A microfilm reader-printer is provided for reading or making photocopies of microfilm and a photocopier is available for print resources. Current copying charges will apply. Genealogy area times are the same as the regular library hours.
The library encourages the use of Interlibrary Loan (ILL), as this is an efficient, cost-saving way to address specific but limited patron interest. Requests to borrow from other libraries will be limited to those items that the library might not be expected to own. Interlibrary loan will not be used to obtain copies of videocassettes, DVDs, and CDs. Borrowers of ILL materials must have a valid library card and be in good standing with no overdue materials or fines. Materials borrowed through ILL are due according to the date set by the lending library.Renewals will be at the discretion of the lending library.Lost or damaged ILL materials may also carry a processing fee in addition to the replacement cost of the item(s); this is also determined by the lending library. Interlibrary loans may be renewed if the lending library permits. ILL is encouraged for bookmobile patrons as well.
The library's photocopy machine is self-service.Copies are 15 cents per side per page (letter) for black and white and 25 cents per side per page (letter) for color copies. It is the sole responsibility of the patron to abide by copyright laws.
