We will be live on the air with Lake 88.1 FM this Saturday January 30th at 9:00 a.m.. Tune in to hear more about library goodies to get you through this winter: curbside pick-up, take and make activity kits for kids, virtual programs like our popular Play, Learn and Story with Laura Lee, new online arts and crafts video classes from CreativeBug, and free wi-fi lending.
Curbside access to library materials is ongoing even with the new restrictions put in place by the provincial government January 12 2021. We welcome our members to reach out for help to order books, magazines, DVDs, printed forms, and other items, or to dip into our digital collections. Curbside service remains at the same hours and all returned items will still be quarantined. We encourage everyone to stay safe and if you are considering curbside feel free to order up as many titles as you need to make the most of your trip. Remember many loans can easily be extended, renewals are usually possible and we are virtually fine free. Our online programs are ongoing so check out the event calendar on our website http://www.rlpl.ca or contact email@example.com . Stay safe everyone!
