Inter Library Loans
The WSSPL participates in an Interlibrary Loan service in order to obtain materials not available in our collection.  This service depends on the generosity of public and academic libraries across the state.  For security reasons interlibrary loan materials must be signed out from the front desk. In order to receive this privilege the borrower agrees to:  1.  Accept responsibility for materials between signing out and signing in. This includes cost of damage to or loss of borrowed item. 2. Return the materials by the date due marked on the interlibrary loan slip. Not returning materials to the lending library on time may jeopardize our ability to continue receiving interlibrary loan services from that library. Please make every effort to return this material by the due date.  Please note: Borrowers may be required to have a valid library card with the MLN system in order to check out Interlibrary Loan materials.

Computer/Internet Access -- 
The WSSPL offers computer and internet access free of charge at four public access computer terminals.  Anyone 17 years old or younger must have a parent or guardian come into the library and sign a permission form before they will be allowed any access to the computers. Everyone must sign in at the desk to use the computers. There is a 30 minute time limit. We have wireless access as well. The same rules apply, except that the time limit is one hour, and users may come up to the desk to ask for more time.

Videos /DVDs --
We offer both popular release movies as well as children's movies. Primarily our collection is available on VHS tape, though our DVD collection is growing.
