Tackleshare Fishing Rods


Through the TackleShare Program, library members are able to borrow a fishing rod and tackle box kits! This collection is available for all Barrie Public Library members at both locations. For pick up at Painswick, place a hold and we will deliver it. The program runs from the May long weekend until the end of the summer. 

All library card holders can borrow a fishing rod and tackle box. For ages 18+ we encourage you to have your own fishing license (which is a requirement by the province of Ontario). For under 18, a free Youth Fishing License card is available to give youth the experience of having a fishing license. 

One TackleShare kit is allowed per library card, for a loan of 1 week. Up to 3 renewals are allowed if there are no requests. Visit our online catalogue to place a hold on a fishing rod and tackle box kit.

The TackleShare Program is offered in partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters and is sponsored by Ontario Power Generation.
