Shelburne Public Library reinstating inter-library loans

June 13, 2019   ·   0 Comments


The Southern Ontario Library Service, after a few weeks of discussion with the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, has re-opened the portal (VDX) which allows us to access the library books in other libraries so that we can borrow for our patrons through ILLO. 

At YOUR Library, we pride ourselves on putting our Patrons FIRST and so we are using our resources to provide this service once again to you. We have appreciated your support and loyalty through this difficult situation. We think that ILLO is a vital component of our collection service to YOU and look forward to continuing to provide this service.

Please come and see us! We are ready to GO!
