Rural Library Services

Do you live in Ward Three or the rural areas of Ward One? Then this service may be for you!

How it works?

  1. The patrons must have a valid Library Card. You can register as a Library member by visiting any of the locations or signing-up for an e-card. Please refer to the Join the Library webpage for more information.
  2. Once registered as a Library member, please email at illo@beinspired.ca to have your account designated for Rural Services. Based on your address, Library staff will determine your eligibility and send you a confirmation email.
  3. To be eligible, patrons must be able to access the Milton Public Library catalogue.
  4. Search the catalogue, and place a hold on the item you would like to borrow.
  5. When it is available, we will mail the book to you.
  6. When you are finished, re-use the envelope and, using the return label that will be provided, mail it back to the Library.
  7. You need to have Internet access and an email account to participate.

  • Guidelines
    1. We will mail only one book at a time (unless they are really tiny!) and ask that you package them the same way when you return them.
    2. We are limiting the service to print material for now - no A/V.
    3. Materials from other libraries brought in by interlibrary loan will still need to be picked up at the Milton library.
    4. If you have a "B" box, the package should fit in it. If, for some reason, the package is not delivered, you may have to pick it up at the Post Office. Your pickup location is usually still closer than the library.
