New Cayuga Branch: Updates and Announcements


Interlibrary loan services have been suspended. The Southern Ontario Library Service is an agency established years ago by the Province to save taxpayers money by sharing library resources throughout Ontario. In addition to administering OverDrive, a shared e-book database, and negotiating lower prices on many online library services such as Ancestry, SOLS oversees interlibrary loan operations and the delivery of items exchanged between libraries across Ontario. On April 12th, the Ford government cut SOLS’ budget by over 50%, leading to the end of interlibrary exchanges.

We are no longer able to borrow items from libraries outside of Haldimand County. We also anticipate delays in deliveries between HCPL branches.


The entrance door off of Chestnut Street at the Dunnville Branch is currently out of order. Please use the Alder Street and parking lot entrances until the issue is resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience.
