Interlibrary Loans

If our library does not have what you're looking for, ask us about having it supplied by another Ontario library.

What is Interlibrary Loan?

Any borrowed book or item that comes from another library outside of the East Gwillimbury Public Library system is considered an interlibrary loan. Patrons must check the East Gwillimbury Public Library’s catalogue first to determine if the item is available from our collection prior to making an interlibrary loan request to borrow from other libraries.

How do I request an Interlibrary Loan?

You can place a request through library staff at the reference desk, in person or by telephone,


You can use patron self-serve Interlibrary Loan to place your request yourself from the library, work, school, home … anywhere, anytime, and at your convenience.
