Will the stay-at-home order impact library service?

Curbside pickup will continue, but we are making some reductions in hours. Effective immediately, all branches will be closed on Sundays, and beginning January 18 Calvin Park will close at 6 p.m. Monday to Thursday and a 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

We encourage our patrons to combine curbside pickup visits with trips out for groceries and other essentials. We currently hold reservations for 5 days, but we can keep them a few days longer on request.  Since we no longer charge fines, there's no need to make a trip just to avoid overdue library materials - enjoy your items a little longer.

Do you like surprises?

If you're not sure what to read next, we can prepare a grab bag of books in your favourite category.

Pick your category. Choose your branch. And tell us whether you want 3, 5 or 10 books. We'll do the rest.

If you'd rather have personalized selections, check out our May We Suggest service instead.
