Ours is free for now and they have told me they will let me know if they cannot 
afford a request of mine, but considering how many books we donate, they would 
likely not charge.  I got 15-20 last year, but we donated over 75 (quit 
there in October), so we are good.

Keep up with Nichole's recovery:

Hi everyone,
I am just curious.
How many of you have a fee or a charge or a  requested donation associated with 
Interlibrary loans?
For many years ours were free, and we could borrow  items from across the 
state.  But this year with budgets being cut, we are  now, only allowed 5 free 
ones a year, and then the rest are a $3.00 donation per  item, which I consider 
fair, and told the librarian that when she was talking to  me about it.  I use 
the service a lot, I will readily admit.
But I was just wondering.  Is Pennsylvania  catching up to other states in this.
