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. 

Library Mobile Apps

Mobile Apps for Library Services

Many of the Markham Public Library’s resources and services are available through mobile apps.

You will need an MPL card and your PIN to access most of these resources.

MPL Mobile

The MPL Mobile app makes it easy to find and discover titles, check availability of titles, place holds and manage your account.  You can even scan the ISBN barcode on a book in a store to see if MPL owns the title. You can also display your library card barcode in the app to check out items.
