Reciprocal borrowing agreement
The Rural Municipality of Montcalm and the South Central Regional Library (SCRL) have a reciprocal borrowing agreement allowing residents from both regions to borrow from each other’s libraries. Montcalm residents must show their Bibliothèque Montcalm library card when borrowing from a SCRL in Altona, Winkler or Morden. Library cards can be obtained free of charge from the library.
Inter library loans
If we do not have the book that you are looking for, it is possible to request it from another library using the interlibrary loan service. Once the request has been sent, the book is generally received within a week. You may also do your own search by logging on tohttp://www.fill.sitka.bclibraries.ca.
