Interlibrary loan service no longer available

Due to provincial funding cuts, interlibrary loan service is no longer available.


Pending requests will NOT be filled.

New requests will NOT be possible.

The end of the SOLS delivery service means that 24 drivers (full time, part time and occasional) will lose their jobs. Last year, they drove almost 1 million kilometers to deliver over 710,000 packages to 153 main library branches across southern Ontario. Truly the end of an era in provincial resource sharing.
