London Public Library Interlibrary Loan (ILLO)

APRIL 18, 2019 ALERT: Interlibrary loan service has been suspended across the province due to budget cuts to the Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS) and the Ontario Library Service - North (OLS - North). London Public Library is unable to fill interlibrary loan requests at this time, and will not be taking any additional requests until further notice. We will provide you with more updates as they become available.
