Who can borrow?
If you are a member of the Gaynor Family Regional Library, you may request to borrow materials through inter library loan (ILL) by using fILL an interlibrary loan management system for all Manitoba public libraries. fILL enables library patrons to quickly and easily search the catalogues of many Manitoba public libraries at the same time. When you request an item through fILL your local library staff will try to borrow the item from the lending library for you. If you have any outstanding fines or if there is a problem with the account, it must be cleared before a request is made.
How do I make a request?
Advise the Circulation Clerk of the title/author or subject, and a request form will be sent on your behalf or call us at (204) 482-3522. For on-line access to fILL follow this link: https://fill.mb.libraries.coop/cgi-bin/public.cgi
