still have options. Try ordering them from another library, FREE of charge.




Go to the online form to request a title

Our Interlibrary Loan service allows the Library to borrow the books you need from other libraries' collections from across Ontario. Interlibrary Loan requests are accepted from all patrons with a valid Grimsby Public Library card in good standing. Interlibrary Loans can be requested online or in person at the Library.

Borrowing guidelines

   • You must use your own card when you request an interlibrary loan.

   • Depending on the material, an interlibrary loan may take 2 to 4 weeks to get here.

   • Interlibrary loans are not renewable. The loan period is 3 weeks.

   • You can borrow microfilm from national and provincial archives.

   • We do not request/receive DVDs.

   • Recently published books less than one year old are not available through this service.


Damaged or Lost Interlibrary Loans

Interlibrary loan items do not belong to the Grimsby Public Library, but are borrowed from other libraries. If you lose or damage an item you have borrowed on interlibrary loan, you will be charged a replacement cost and an administrative fee. Both amounts are set by the other library and the amounts may be substantial.
