NOTICE: Inter-library Loans
Last week we learned that the provincial government will be reducing the budget of the Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS) by 50%.
SOLS provides centralized training, consulting, inter-library loan, and other services to all libraries across Ontario.
These cuts are being made immediately and we have been informed that the inter-library loan program has been cancelled as a direct result of the budget cuts.
SOLS inter-library loan delivery service will permanently cease to operate, effective April 26th 2019.
To help us with this transition, we are asking that you return your inter-library loans to your local branch by April 23, 2019.
Thank you for your cooperation.
