The Library is now open with extended hours (with some restrictions and reduced services.) We encourage patrons to limit their visits to 60 minutes. We also have a maximum number of patrons allowed in the building at one time, so you may be asked to wait.
Please wear a mask during your visit. Masks are mandatory now (and must be worn in accordance with provincial guidelines for your entire visit).
Library hours for March are:
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, Thursday, and Friday
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday
12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
Library Takeout curbside pick-up is still available by appointment.
Provincial Interlibrary loans have been reinstated as well.
We look forward to seeing everyone again.
February is international LOVE YOUR LIBRARY month. Please send us a note on why you “love your library,” or write on one of the hearts we have available at the Welcome Desk.
