New Provincial Budget Effects

The operating budget for the Southern Ontario Library Service (SOLS) has been cut by 50%. This directly affects our patrons.

One service that will no longer be available due to this cut is interlibrary loans. We will not be able to accept or attempt to fulfill interlibrary loan requests after April 25th.

Please read this  announcement from SOLS for more details and contact MPP Steve Clark if you have concerns or comments.
