Books To Go

The Books to Go service resumes on June 3rd, 2021.

Books to Go is a curbside pick-up and drop off service for book loans at Fennell, Stoney Creek & IAHS library campus locations through appointment bookings.

How to Request an Item

To request a item, you will need to search the Library Catalogue. Once you have found an item that you would like to checkout, follow the instructions in our How to Place a Hold guide to complete your request. 

At this time, no inter-campus delivery option is available. Items can only be checked out from their home location. For example, if you would like to place a hold on an item that is only available at the Stoney Creek Library, you will need to travel to that campus to pick up the item. The item cannot be sent to the Fennell or IAHS locations for pick up.

Note: High Demand books are not available for borrowing at this time.

Appointment Booking for Pick Up/Drop Off

Staff are not on location as the campus is closed so an appointment is necessary to pickup/drop off items.

After placing your hold, you will receive an email notification from the Library indicating that your item(s) are ready for pick up and to book a time slot to arrive on campus. Use the same booking procedures to book a time to drop-off item(s).

Pick Up & Drop Off days:
Mondays & Thursdays

Link to available time slots will be in the notification email.

Note: Please wait for your email notification to book your time prior to coming onto campus.
