Reopening during Covid

We are pleased to be open to our members once more. When you stop in for a visit we ask that you observe the following changes meant to keep all of us more safe. 

  • If you have a fever, cough or are otherwise feeling unwell, please do not visit the library. We are offering a curbside service so you can have a friend pick materials up for you. Call us to request items or arrange a pick up time. Take the self-assessment if you think you might need to be tested for COVID-19.
  • Please return materials to the book drop downstairs. The chute is located outside and to the left of the main doors. We quarantine all books for 3 days before returning them to the library.
  • Please use hand sanitizer when entering the library. If you prefer, we do have a sink for hand washing.
  • If you are visiting the library with children under 6, please keep them with you at all times. 
  • Please maintain 2 metres (6 feet) of distance between you and others.
  • Watch for floor decals as you navigate the library.
  • Our team will wear masks when distancing is not possible (e.g. if we are helping you with a computer). If you are not able to distance from others (e.g. if you are asking for help with a device or computer) we ask that you bring and wear a mask too.
  • If you prefer not to enter the library, take advantage of our curbside service. We will meet you at the door with your selections.
  • We are limiting the number of patrons in the library at the same time. If you arrive during a high traffic period, please be patient.
  • We have removed soft furniture and several computers to ensure physical distancing is possible. We ask that you keep computer use to a maximum of 60 minutes.
  • If you have any questions or feedback for us please call 403-742-2292 or email


Several organizations are making resources available while we are physical distancing. Call the library during regular hours for more information.
