hoopla's  Bonus Borrows Collection will end on May 31, 2020.  Please continue to enjoy the current increased hoopla monthly borrowing limit of 10 items.

MPL is not yet ready to offer curbside pickup.  We are working with the City of Markham to develop a phased in reopening plan with the top priority being the safety of our staff and community.  Details are being finalized and will be announced when they become ready. In the meantime all items currently on your account are renewed until June 30th. 



A Lendery is a library of things - instead of books you can borrow items like sports equipment, hand tools and kitchen appliances.  The Lendery lets you borrow things that you might need occasionally or that you want to try but don't need to own.  Borrow a coffee urn for an event.  Try a pasta maker.  Borrow a hammer drill to drill into cement or brick.

The Lendery is located at the Milliken Mills Library.  To borrow from the Lendery you need to:

  • be 18 years or over
  • have a valid MPL card
  • complete a Lendery borrowing agreement with staff

Lendery items are available on a first-come-first-serve basis (no holds) and can be borrowed for 7 days.

The Lendery is a partnership between Markham Public Library, York Region and York Region Makers an organization dedicated to helping entrepreneurs, inventors, makers and artists to achieve their goals.
