Interlibrary Loan Services


Bruce County Public Library’s Interlibrary Loan Service has been provided through the provincial agency, the Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS).  Due to a recent 50% funding reduction SOLS received in the Ontario provincial budget, SOLS can no longer provide Ontario libraries with its Interlibrary Loan service.  This service will officially end as of Friday, April 26th, 2019.

What you need to know as a Bruce County Public Library user:

  • Any Interlibrary Loans will need to be returned to the library immediately;
