Mask wearing will still be required within the building. Gloves will no longer be required as of May 4, and returned items will no longer be quarantined.

In addition, the Library’s Reading Area and meeting rooms will once again be open to the public. In order to maintain social distancing, meeting room capacities will be limited to the following:

  • Small Study Room – 2 persons at a time
  • Judith Lightfoot Conference Room – 4 Persons at a time
  • Library Community Room – 10 persons at a time

Rooms will be reserved in two-hour time blocks. Please contact the Library to reserve a room. The Library reserves the right to re-assign rooms to allow maximum room use. The meeting room policy and application are available here.

Reservations in one-hour increments will still be required to use the library computers. However, patrons may once again bring their laptops or tablets and sit in the reading area. The reading area will be limited to 4 persons at a time.

For health and safety reasons, our coffee corner will be unavailable until further notice. Because children cannot yet be vaccinated, the computers in the children’s room will remain unavailable until further notice.

We are pleased to welcome our community back to the library with our full hours. We appreciate your co-operation. With continued preventive measures against COVID-19, we look forward to the day when we can restore full library services.
