Under the current public health order (August 28, 2021), the Library building is open to the public but masks are required again. Staff members are still available to provide library service through curbside pickup or delivery during our open hours 9:30 am and 4 pm, Tuesday through Friday.
Using Your Account Online
The Library is using software called Evergreen that puts our catalogue on the Web and gives patrons online access to renew books or place holds. With a patron card you’ll be able to access your account and use online services like eLibraries Manitoba (audiobooks and ebooks) and EBSCOhost (online databases).
Please visit the Library to sign up for a new card if you don’t yet have one.
To download audiobooks or ebooks visit eLibraries Manitoba.
Digital talking books for people with print disabilities are available from NNELS. If you have signed up for this service at the library, you can log in with your library card.
Clear as mud? It’s okay, we’re librarians and we like answering questions!
If you’re interested in borrowing books from other Manitoba public libraries and would like to search for them yourself you may use the Manitoba Public Libraries ILL management system (named fILL) (formerly called MAPLIN).
fILL is linked with our Evergreen system so your login (barcode and password) is the same on fILL as it is for eLibraries Manitoba or your account on Evergreen. Any requests you make will be sent to us to review and forward to the other library. If we’re unable to fill the request for some reason we will try to notify you.
As an integral part of our community since 1959, Boissevain & Morton Regional Library strives to connect our patrons with enjoyable reading, good information, interesting exhibits, and each other. We have a broad collection of fiction and non-fiction for all ages, as well as movies, reference material, and the Boissevain Community Archives. And, if you can’t find what you’re looking for within our walls we’re more than happy to request it from another library or help you find it on the Internet.
