To order and pick-up items follow these steps:

Step one - Place your items on hold:

  • Use our online catalog here to search for items you wish to borrow and to place on hold.

For assistance with finding items you want to borrow and with placing a hold call us at 613-968-6731 ext. 2037 or email us at infoserv@bellevillelibrary.ca

When your items are ready, you’ll be notified by email, text or phone, according to our record of your preference. You’ll have 10 days to collect your requested items. Note – we ask that you give our staff 48 hours from the time you receive your notice before you come to the library to collect your item(s). This will allow our staff time to process your request and check your item(s) out to your card. 

Step two - Pick-up your items at the Library’s front doors:

  • Your items will be available for pick-up during our temporary hours:

Monday – Thursday 11:00 am – 7:00 pm

Friday – Saturday 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

  • Staff will ask you for your name and then give you your material. All of your items will already be checked out and the due date to return them will be attached.


Online e-resources:

There are many digital resources and online services that the Library provides that offer a wide variety of educational and recreational experiences. Please visit our Virtual Branch and check them out! 

If customers are having trouble accessing online services, or have questions about the closure of the facility, they can call 613-968-6731 ext. 2037, or email infoserv@bellevillelibrary.ca.


Due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic: Do Not Come to Pick-up or Return Library material:
