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?

Due to provincial funding cuts, all online services that allow for Inter-Library Loan requests are no longer functioning.
