What’s New

Stage 2 Computer Booking

We’re excited to offer computer access by booking only, via phone or email to your branch, beginning Monday June 29 2020.  Confirm your time, bring your mask (or use one provided – we’ve got you covered!), hand sanitize, and the squeaky clean computer station is all yours for 45 minutes.  Printing is also available, with flexible payment options as staff will not be giving change.

At this time we have Delta, Elgin, Newboro and Portland locations available (South Elmsley remains closed to the public). This is for computer use only – sorry no shelf browsing at this time but outdoor wifi and Curbside Pick-up services are ongoing.  If you have any questions or need further help, email or call your branch or contact us.

Curbside pick-up is a go

We are excited to launch our curbside pick-up service this week!  Our first open pick-up times will be on Friday May 29, 2020.  Here’s the scoop or get all the details here.

Placing holds

Pick-ups

    • We will notify you once we have your items ready and let you know the soonest pick-up time available.
    • Branches, including washrooms, are still closed.
    • Only 1 person at a time in the entrance-way for pick-up at a time.
    • Please only pick up your bag with your last name and last 5 digits of your card.

We ask for your patience during this new process as we get our bearings. Your holds may take longer to reach you. We’re looking forward to “seeing you” again!
