Looking for an item that is not in the Library Catalogue? The East Gwillimbury Library also provides Inter-Library Loan (ILLO) services to all cardholders. ILLO allows the Library to borrow titles from other Libraries in Ontario.

What kind of items can be borrowed with Inter-Library Loans?

Inter-Library Loans can be used to borrow print, audio, and dvd titles from other partnering Libraries. All library materials may be requested on Inter-Library loan, subject to the availability and Inter-Library loan policies of the lending libraries. Loan periods are also subject to the policies of the lending Library. Generally, audio-visual materials, such as DVDs/videos and cassettes/CDs, are difficult to obtain, and the East Gwillimbury Library will not attempt to borrow a title within one year of its publishing date.

How do I make an Inter-Library Loan Request?

To make an ILLO request, either visit a branch, or visit the ILLO Self Serve Page of the Library. Library staff will review the request, and will contact you when the title arrives. Expect the process to take anywhere from two to four weeks, depending on the availability of the item.
