- En bref
While you will remain unable to enter the building, it will be possible to borrow traditional books and other documents on physical media from the library again as of Friday, May 29, by appointment only.
Your loans will be given to you at the main door on Graham Boulevard, one user at a time, in 10-minute increments. Appointments will be scheduled Monday to Friday, between 10:00 and 16:30.
How to make an appointment
- Contact the library preferably by email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or otherwise by phone (514 734-2967). If you know them, specify by title and author the documents you wish to borrow. Our online catalogue remains available to plan your loans. It is also possible to request that the librarians prepare a selection of documents on a general topic for you.
- Following your email or your call, the reference service will contact you in writing or by phone to discuss the requested loans or make suggestions.
- Once your documents are ready and registered in the system, the library will contact you again to schedule an appointment.
- Since the loans will be settled in advance, at the time of your visit you will not be required to present your library card. At the agreed moment, your stack of documents will be waiting for you on a table at the entrance, in order of appointments.
- You can return books and other items in the return chute located on the south side of the building, near Sherwood Crescent.
Late fees, number of documents, loan periods
The library abolished its late fees in May.
However, the number of items that can be borrowed and the loan periods remain the same. For example, 15 books can be borrowed at a time, 6 of which can be new releases; the loan period remains 7 days for new releases and 21 days for the other books.
See our Services and Policies page for details (loan period, number of items) about all the resources available, keeping in mind that during the pandemic, some of the other information on this page is temporarily invalidated: the library remains closed to the public.
