Borrow From Another Library

Didn't find what you were looking for in our catalogue?

The Guelph Public Library welcomes your requests! We can borrow items from other libraries for you through Interlibrary Loan.

  • Before requesting an Interlibrary Loan, check the Guelph Public Library catalogue. If we have the title you are looking for, please place a request through our catalogue.
  • For items published within the last year, please Suggest a Purchase as most libraries will not lend out new material through Interlibrary Loan.
