If you requested a book from a library elsewhere in Ontario and were expecting it to arrive soon, you’re out of luck.
Interlibrary loan services have been suspended at least until May 31 at all libraries across Ontario due to provincial government budget cuts.
It means the service won’t be offered at the 15 small rural library branches across Peterborough County and two branches in the city.
Interlibrary loans allow library patrons to request books not available in their local branch from another library elsewhere in the province. The book arrives at your local branch thanks to a government-funded courier service. But now the courier has been cancelled.
