The Peterborough Public Library regrets to inform our members that effective immediately our Interlibrary Loan Service (ILLO) is suspended until further notice.

The provincial ILLO service is administered by the Southern Ontario Library Service. Due to a 50% cut to their operating budget announced in the recent provincial budget, ILLO has been suspended indefinitely.

Until more information is announced about the future of the service the Peterborough Public Library will not be accepting ILLO requests. Outstanding requests will not be filled, and items currently borrowed using this service should be returned as soon as possible.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to see this service restored.  For more information about your loans please contact the library at
