Inter-Library Loan

Looking for a book or movie that we don’t own? We can try to get it by Inter-library Loan (ILLO). ILLO is run by Ontario Library Service’s INFO. We request the items you want and find a library who can lend the material to us. You can request materials from another library in person or from home by using Self-Serve ILLO. Please note we restrict our patrons to 5 requests per calendar month.

Some items are not available by Inter-library Loan. Examples include new releases, popular best sellers, reference material, and items Hanover Public Library already owns.

Please note that your library account must be in good standing at time of request.


Please request your renewal three (3) business days before your item is due. Renewals are granted at the discretion of the lending library, not the Hanover Public Library.

Overdue Fines

Overdue fine for ILLO items is $1.50 per day

Failure to pick up an ILLO item may result in a fine of $5.00 per item

If you find something you’d like us to get for you, you can also add a “suggestion” on our Library Koha catalogue, or use the contact form to send us your request.

If you want more information about placing requests or if you would like to speak to Norma, our ILLO coordinator, you can call or visit the library or send us an e-mail using our Contact page.
