Kits will be managed as a take-home program, with families registering to pick up their kit at the host branch. Over the next six months, watch for them to be available from our Calvin Park, Central, Cloyne, Isabel Turner, Pittsburgh, Rideau Heights, Sharbot Lake, Sydenham, and Wolfe Island branches.
Programs, Events, Services and Recommendations
Our casual book discussion mixer returns on Wednesday, January 20th. Join us for fun discussion about what we've been reading so far this year.
Today's spotlight shares Heidi's favourites, with a few recommended by her friends.
If Heidi's reading taste matches yours, reach out through our May We Suggest service to get personalized recommendations for historical and biographical fiction, memoirs, and biographies
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.
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.
