Loan Periods and Service Charges

Current Loans

All materials on loan and due during this period can be returned upon re-opening of the library, without fines. A grace period of at least one week will be implemented upon re-opening. Renewals can also be done using your online account (select “Access My Account” from the options on the library’s main webpage).

Returns

We ask at this time that members retain any borrowed materials and do not return them through our overnight drop boxes. Please return materials after our branches have reopened.

You can find a wide range of materials at your local Haldimand County Library branch – not just books! A variety of magazines, DVDs & videos, books on CD, video games, music CDs, reference materials and more are available for loan. Materials are on loan for a specified period and service charges will be applied to overdue items. Learn more about library materials & hours below.
