Library Cards

To borrow materials from the library, you must have a membership card.  Members of our community may obtain a FREE Library Membership Card by filling out a short application with your name, address and telephone number.  A library membership card is valid for two years from the date of issue.  Patrons are expected to present their cards at the circulation desk when signing out library materials.

Each person is responsible for material borrowed on his or her library card   Responsibility for the reading material of children rests with their parents or legal guardian.

If something you want is checked out at the moment, you may ask the library staff to place a hold on it for you.

Loan Periods, Fines & Fees

The loan period is 14 days.  Material may be renewed up to twice. You may renew your materials in the library, by telephone (519-627-7034) or by e-mail (

Material must be returned to the library.

Material held beyond the loan period may be subject to an overdue fine.   Overdue fines are 5 cents/day. Patrons who have overdue material will be subject to loss of borrowing privileges and computer use.

Interlibrary Loan

For items not located at our own library, we can try to obtain the item from another library. This process can take from 2-6 weeks (on average).  There is a limit of three requests at one time. Patrons will be notified by phone when the material arrives; items will be held for one week. Loan periods will vary depending on the source library.

The library is your gateway to a world of information.  In return, respect the material you borrow, keep it safe and return material on time so that others may enjoy it as well.
