Normally interlibrary loans are not renewable. However, in exceptional circumstances, please email your request at:

Most public libraries in Canada will loan material free of charge. If your request can be filled from one of these libraries there will be no charge to you. If a fee is charged, this will be passed on to you. We do not order from these libraries without your permission. The charges are added to your account at the library and must be paid when picking up the book.

A $1 fee is charged to your account for each interlibrary loan item not picked up by the deadline.
