Frequently Asked Questions

How many items can I have checked out at one time?


How many items can I have a hold on at one time? 


How long is the lending period?

21 days. After that, your content will automatically expire. There are never any overdues or fines. You may return items early.

Can I renew items?

Yes, as long as there are no holds on the title.

Why do some titles appear to disappear and reappear in cloudLibrary?

Simcoe County Digital Library Services has partnered with public libraries across Ontario to form a cloudLink consortium. Basically, cloudLinking allows participating libraries to pool e-Book & e-Audiobook collections together on cloudLibrary, providing a greater selection of titles and more ‘available now’ copies to library cardholders. Some titles may seem to ‘disappear’ in cloudLibrary if they belong to another library and have been borrowed. These titles will reappear once they are returned and available to borrow again. All Simcoe County titles remain visible, borrowable, and holdable on cloudLibrary regardless of their availability.

Why am I unable to put holds on some materials?

We are unable to place holds on cloudLink materials. Conversely, the other cloudLink Libraries are unable to place holds on Simcoe County Digital Library Service titles.
