Come on in!

Our phased re-opening has begun! The Central and Isabel Turner branches are now open to the public, with restrictions and limited hours. The Calvin Park Branch opening is disrupted by construction in the area. It will be closed on Monday, July 27 and Wednesday, July 29. The Sydenham Branch will reopen on August 4. Curbside pickup will no longer be available at these locations. Hours are limited in some locations, so patrons are encouraged to call or check the website before heading out.

All other locations remain closed but will continue to offer curbside pickup.

Grownup Storytime (Online)

Grownup Storytime is back, but now in digital form until our branches reopen. Relax at home and listen to a couple of short readings -- short stories, essays, articles, excerpts and more. Sit down with your lunch or your knitting, or just take a break from your busy day.  Why should kids have all the fun?

Mondays from 12 to 1 p.m., July 6 through August 17 (except the August 3 Civic Holiday). Register now to receive the Zoom link.
