Georgian College

A partnership between Georgian College and the Bracebridge Public Library provides students at the Muskoka Campus with a collection of material geared to meet course requirements. Georgian material can be located in the Bracebridge Public Library online catalogue.

Due to these partnerships, this material may be borrowed by those who hold a valid Bracebridge Public Library card as well.

Reference staff will provide in-depth assistance to Georgian students.
