STARTING JULY 3RD: FRONT DESK PICK-UP & LIMITED COMPUTER ACCESS
We are moving into Stage 2 of Ontario’s Framework for Reopening our Province as of July 3rd! The Province has determined that patrons cannot touch any materials on the shelves (DVDs, books, museum passes, etc.) meaning the library stacks and all meeting spaces are closed.
These new changes will offer limited in-person services including 30-minute time slots on public computers (printing, faxing, scanning) as well as material pick-up at front desk only. You can book public computer appointments by calling 613-628-2400 during open hours, and place holds by calling or online through our catalogue. Drop-in public computer use will be allowed, but we cannot guarantee a spot. A maximum of 7 public persons will be allowed in the library at one time.
Our new modified hours are as follows:
Fridays & Saturdays 10-3

TD SUMMER READING CLUB REGISTRATION- June 15th to 30th
TD Summer Reading Club is Canada’s biggest, bilingual summer reading program for kids of all ages, all interests, and all abilities. This free club celebrates Canadian authors, illustrators and stories, and inspires kids to explore the fun of reading their way. This is key to building a lifelong love of reading!
This year, things are a little bit different! Due to COVID-19, the library is still partially closed, meaning we can't host programs. To keep the club inclusive, we have planned to offer weekly curbside package pick-ups on Wednesdays starting July 6th. The same packages will be available online, too, so if a pick-up isn't do-able, you can print the packages at home. It will be up to you and your family's needs on how you’d like to participate!
If you think your kids would be interested in participating in this slightly different version of Summer Reading Club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 613.628.2400 before June 30th to register! Check out our
