Catalogue App - BookMyne

BookMyne (Place Holds and Renew Materials)

The BookMyne app will automatically search for Elgin County Library branches within a 25km radius of your location. If you click on the name of your local branch, you can also quickly look up the phone number and hours of operation.

When you search for a book, movie, or CD, you will be able to place a hold on the item, choose a pickup location, and will be contacted when the item becomes available. You can also take advantage of our popular renewal service. If you need to keep your materials past the due date and there is no waiting list, it is possible to renew most materials through BookMyne.
