COVID-19 Library Update 

  Please be advised that the physical Library space continues to be closed to the public. However, staff is still available to help with your questions and concerns. Please send us an email if you need help with anything library-related to  And, of course, all of our online resources are still available to you to use!
New info and procedures currently in place to be aware of:
  • Returns: In order to manage returns for the large number of items currently in circulation, and to facilitate quarantining items upon return, we will only be opening our drop box once per week. Every Monday, between 9am - 5pm the box will be accessible for you to return your library items. It will then be closed again and all returned items will be quarantined for at least 7 days.
  • Return Dates: Due to the reduced availability of the drop box for returning items, all items that are currently checked out have been automatically renewed until May 1st. Please hold on to your checked out items until that time, or you are welcome to return them in the drop box when it is open on Mondays.
  • Tax Return Help: Due to current physical restrictions, this program has been cancelled for the time being. We are looking into options to potentially restart the program in a different format, but it remains to be seen if that will be feasible. We will post updates as they become available.
  • Given the rapidly shifting global situation, we are adapting our procedures regularly. The best way to find the most up-to-date information is to follow our Facebook page, which can be found here. Even if you do not have a Facebook account you are still able to see posts if you visit the page. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at  or call 604-894-6916 and leave a message.  Staff are still actively working behind the scenes to continue to support our patrons and community.
