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.
