ALERT: Interlibrary Loans have been suspended until further notice

Interlibrary loan service has been suspended across the province due to budget cuts to the Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS) and the Ontario Library Service - North (OLS - North). Grimsby Public Library is unable to fill interlibrary loan requests at this time, and will not be taking any additional requests until further notice. We will provide you with more updates as they become available.

Suspension remains in effect until at least May 31st, 2019. Stay tuned for more details.
