Are you a Maker?

The Grimsby Public Library is looking for people who know how to create or make something... anything - and who are willing to share their passion and expertise. After all libraries are all about sharing knowledge and information - and not just through books.  If you have a passion or skill that you would like to share then please let us know by filling out this quick and easy online form.

The Visiting Library... &

Have your library books delivered right to your home

This Grimsby Public Library service is for home-bound users who are unable to visit the Library due to disability, illness, or frality. Staff select and deliver items to patrons once a month.

If you would like to apply for this service, please call 905.945.5142




How it Works:

The Library has purchased 10 copies of each book. A bundle with one copy of each of the 3 titles will be available for check out, and will be stored behind the Library Service Desk in GPL branded bags. These will be available for spring/summer 2015.

These bundles will circulate for three weeks and can be renewed up to 3 times but will be not be eligible for requests. 

In the fall, these books will become Book Club in a Bag sets. This means, like the rest of that collection, that the 10 copies of each book will be available to book clubs to check out for 6 weeks. Learn more about Book Club in a Bag by clicking here.
