Interlibrary Loan Services

ANNOUNCEMENT! We'd be closing on Friday 24th Feb. 2022 due to the snowstorm.

North Grenville Public Library is part of the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Network for Ontario public libraries, allowing patrons access to the collections of over 175 public libraries in Ontario, public and academic libraries across the country, the Ontario Archives and the Library and Archives Canada.

Requesting an Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If we do not have a book, DVD or other material which you are looking for, you can request it on Interlibrary Loan (ILL):

Renew or Cancel your ILL

To renew your request, please phone or email several days before the due date. Please note that not all materials are eligible for renewal.

To cancel your ILL request, please phone or email as soon as possible so that expenses are not incurred for unwanted materials.
