For items not in the collection of Perth & District Union Public Library, staff will try to obtain the material from another library. This service connects users to books from throughout Ontario and Canada.
This process can take from 2-6 weeks. This is a free service to our patrons although, in a very few cases, a fee could be involved. The patron will be notified of this possibility before the item is ordered. There is a limit of three requests at one time. Patrons will be notified by phone or e-mail when the material arrives. Loan periods will vary depending on the source library.
If a book is damaged or lost, the patron will be charged the rate of replacement as per the lending library's policy. Interloan privileges can be limited or revoked at the library's discretion.
