Now available to our Library patrons: the Ontario Library Service collection of many thousands of eBooks and audiobooks, powered by OverDrive, and available at the Download Centre.

Since the design of the Download Centre web pages has recently been modernized, we recommend that patrons go to the help page Discover the Next Generation Experience for a useful introduction.


Our Web Catalog allows you to search our collection for books, enter reserve requests, check due dates for books you have out, and renew loans. For basic information on using the Catalog, see Getting Started.


Our Online Information Sources provide a wide range of services and databases, with the World Book encyclopedia, travel and health information, reader advisory sources, material for kids and teens, research resources, and more. These resources can be accessed from any Internet-connected computer.

New: two additional online information databases, previously only available on computers at the Library, can now be accessed from home. They are Global Road Warrior and A to Z Maps Online, and together they provide extensive resources for research and travel planning. To connect to them, please visit the Online Information Sources page.


Computing at the Library: our building offers free WiFi connectivity, providing Internet access for laptop computers and other devices. We have six desktop computers available for patron use, with application software such as Microsoft Office. In addition to general web browsing, these PCs feature links to the Ancestry genealogical site, Consumer Reports Online, A to Z Maps Online, and Global Road Warrior.


Used Books For Sale: the Library always has lots of items for sale, at the bargain price of 25 cents. Look for them when you visit.


Book Donation Policy: the Library welcomes donations of books and other materials.  However, we cannot accept the following: books older than 5 years, computer books older than 1 year, condensed or abridged books, textbooks, and damaged or mildewed books. If you are unsure whether material would be useful to the library, please speak to the librarian before donating.

Gifts of any size are always welcome and appreciated, and tax receipts can be provided for donations of $20 or more. Donations can be made in person at the Library, or via PayPal.
