Requesting Items

When requesting items using our online catalogue, please select Canso Library as a pickup location. Please ensure that you have a current phone number or email address listed on your library account. Staff will need current contact information in order to arrange a pickup time once materials are ready.

If you do not have internet access, please call the library at 902-366-2955 with title requests. Please note that phone and email are monitored 11am-1pm and 2-6pm, Wednesday - Saturday.

Schedule a pickup time

Staff will contact you to schedule a pickup time when requested items become available.  Our available pickup windows will be divided into 30 minute appointments that take place between 11am-1pm and 2-6pm, Wednesday-Saturday.

Contactless Curbside Pickup

Items will be available at the Canso Library (169 Main Street, Canso, NS) during your scheduled pickup window.

Items will be checked out to you and will be inside a paper bag. Your surname will be written on the bag. We recommend that you set this package aside for 24 hours before opening and wash your hands after discarding the bag.

At the beginning of your scheduled pickup window, the bag will be placed just outside the door in a box marked Curbside Pickup. They will remain there for 30 minutes. If they are not retrieved during the scheduled window, they will be taken inside and a new pickup window must be arranged by phone. Please call 902-366-2955 to reschedule or cancel. Items that are not picked up within 1 week after original scheduled pickup window will be cancelled and items will be sent along to the next requestor or to be reshelved.


Please place returns in the bookdrop on the front porch of the library. 

Please note that all items returned are quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours before they are processed. They will remain on your library account during that period of time. ECRL does not charge overdue fines.
