Interlibrary Loan

Can’t find what you are looking for?  Printed materials, excluding recently published items, can be ordered in from other Southern Ontario Libraries. A Staff Member or Volunteer will call when the item arrives at the Library, so please make sure you have provided an up-to-date phone number.

Please limit requests to 3 at one time.  Note:  Arrival times and due dates on these items are generated by the lending library, and are not at the discretion of Madoc Public Library staff.

Those who are comfortable performing searches and filling forms on a computer may be candidates for Patron-initiated Interlibrary Loan requests.  Staff will provide a training session and on-going support.  Interlibrary Loans will be sent to the Library for processing. Please contact Staff for more information, or to sign up for this service.
