Service Status

Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

As of Friday January 14th 2022, we are once again open for in-person services. However, because of the provincial order to return to our COVID Safety Plan, there will be some changes compared to when we were last open to the public. Curbside services will remain available on an elective basis, in addition to home delivery for those who require it.

Service hours are as follows:
- Weekdays: 10am - 5pm (to 9pm Tuesdays and Wednesdays)
- Saturdays: 1pm - 5pm

Services available include:
- In-person shelf browsing*
- Computer use (4 stations, 30 minute sessions**)
- Document services (print, fax, photocopy, scan to e-mail)
- Children's grab bags

New temporary policies include:
- 45-minute overall visit length
- Maximum capacity 20 people plus staff***
- All visitors must either wash or sanitize their hands upon entering the library
- Social distancing (2m) is to be observed (Masks continue to be mandated as per provincial order)

* - Parts of the R-Z aisle in Adult Fiction are inaccessible. Books have been moved onto adjacent shelving carts. ** - Sessions may be extended in exceptional circumstances. *** - If the capacity exceeds 20 persons, further patrons will be asked to wait until existing patrons depart.

Item returns are to be brought inside, to the return slots at the circulation desk, during open hours. While we are closed, use the outside book bin at the lower end of the ramp.

Exam invigilations may be arranged with the Chief Librarian. However, we are not renting out the Multi-Purpose Room to community groups at this time, in light of the provincial prohibition of indoor organized gatherings of any size.

Thank you for your cooperation. We appreciate your continued patronage.
