Reservations

 

Library members can place reservations for documents that are available or not on the shelves.  Reservations may be placed at the library catalogue terminals or online from home. A maximum of 6 reservations per person may be placed at one time.

When the requested item becomes available, library members are contacted by telephone and have 3 days in which to come to the library to borrow the item.

 

Please note that if you do not pick up the reserved item, a fee of $1 per item will apply.

 

 

Loans

 

Maximum of 50 loans per card.

 

 

Renewals 

 
You can renew documents online as long as they are not overdue or reserved.  If you have any problems renewing online, please call the library and ask to speak with someone working at the circulation desk.

 

Please note that the following documents do not allow renewals at any time:  Fast reads, Best Sellers, video games and language courses.

 

Please note that for lost or damaged documents, there is an administration fee of $12 per document in addition to the cost of replacement and fines.

 

 

Suggestions for Purchase

 

You can make online suggestions for purchase by logging into your account and clicking on the button:  Make a suggestion for purchase.   Just fill out the form and click on submit.

 

In the event the library does not approve the suggestion you have made, an Inter-Library loan can be requested for you.   Please note that only books can be requested through the Inter-Library loan service.

 

There is a limit of 5 online suggestions per month per person.

 

 


 

SelfCheck machine

 

The SelfCheck machine, located near the entrance of the library, allows you to check out documents yourself. 

 

If you are unfamiliar with how the machine works, the staff at the circulation counter will be happy to help you. 

So, the next time you are in a hurry, why wait? Take advantage of the technology and check out your own documents. 

 

But don't forget to print out your receipt.
