Active library card holders may request a title if it is not found in our catalogue. We will consider your request to purchase for our collection, as outlined in the Collection Development Policy or to borrow from another library system through Interlibrary Loan. For titles published within the last twelve months please refer to the Suggest a Purchase guidelines and form here.

What is Interlibrary Loan?

It is a FREE service that allows our customers to borrow from another library’s collection if Brampton Library does not have the item in our catalogue.

What can I borrow?

We are able to borrow a wide range of materials that are not owned by Brampton Library. However, due to restrictions set by the owning library we are usually not able to borrow:

  • books published within the last 12 months
  • reference and other non-circulating materials
  • audiovisual items including DVDs, Blu-Ray, Music CDs and Games
  • magazines and newspapers
  • eBooks and eresources

How long does it take?

It takes four weeks or longer for the item to arrive. We cannot guarantee fulfillment of request by a certain date. You will be notified by email or telephone when your request is ready for pick-up.

We ask that you pick up your Interlibrary Loan material as soon as possible, as we are responsible for getting the material back to the lending library in a timely manner.

How many items can I request?

Due to short loan periods and limited renewals customer requests are limited to five per month.

Can I renew an Interlibrary Loan item?

One term of renewal is permitted for items if the lending library agrees. However, items from University libraries are not renewable. Requests for renewal should be made at least seven days before the due date. Please make every effort to return your Interlibrary Loan material promptly.

What if I lose or damage an Interlibrary Loan item?

Loss or damage of Interlibrary Loan material will result in a replacement fee set by the lending library. The replacement fee may include replacement, processing, and service charges.

How do I submit a request?

You may submit a request by:

  • filling out the form below as accurately as possible
  • visiting one of our branches in person
  • contacting Brampton Library by telephone during operating hours (905) 793-4636
