If you wish to locate a book that is not in our collection you may apply to get it through our Interlibrary Loan Services. To do this, you may call, e-mail or fill out a form at the Madawaska Valley Public Library, giving your name, telephone number and library card number and all the pertinent book information (author, title, publisher and year of publication, if known). To search the Ontario Public Libraries Card Catalogue to see if the item you desire is available at a public library in Ontario and to copy the relevant information on the book, go to



  • Books published within 12 months of the request date will not be filled. 
  • Lending libraries determine the loan period for items and what items they will loan.

  • If you request an item and it is not picked up there is a charge of $5 as lending libraries pay the postage charges for both shipping and returning the item they are interlibrary loaning.
