Inter-Library Loan Services update

Although the provincial government has not diminished their cut of 50% to the Southern Ontario Library Service’s (SOLS) operating budget, Bracebridge Public Library will resume Interlibrary Loan Service. Interlibrary Loans will now be delivered via Canada Post to the requesting library. The majority of the delivery costs will need to be added to the libraries’ budgets. At this time, we are unsure if/how this may affect participation in this provincial resource-sharing service by libraries in Ontario. We will do our best to find the library resources you need.
