Library Corner for the week of February 15, 2021

Updated 2021/02/18

WELCOME BACK

The Library has reopened as of February 12th. We are following the current Provincial Restart MB guidelines. All patrons will need to wear a mask, hand sanitize, and provide contact tracing to the staff upon entry. We would ask that patrons please be mindful of social distancing and the Library will have a strict policy of a 25% capacity in the building at one time. We would ask that all returns be placed in our book chute prior to entry. Returned items will still be quarantined for three days, and all loans have a three-day grace period beyond their due date before fines are incurred.

The Library Board and Staff wish to thank our patrons for your patience during this long hiatus of
in-person Library visits. We hope that we were able to meet your needs with our curbside service. Curbside service will still be available for those who prefer this service.

New Hours

As the Library reopens we have implemented new hours. There was been great feedback from our patrons that they have enjoyed the Library being open at 10:30 each open day. So, we have changed our hours open policy. Effective Friday, February 12th the following will be our new open hours:
Tuesday & Thursday 10:30 – 7:00; Wednesday & Friday 10:30 – 5:00, Saturday 10:30 – 2:30. Be sure and ask the staff for a new list of our hours to put on your fridge!
