Why are we doing the renovation in the winter?
One of the main reasons that we chose to have the renovations at this time of the year is due to the conditions and deadlines that we have to meet with regards to the two substantial grants we have received for the renovation. It is also a quieter time of year at the library and our number of visits are much lower during this time.
Is there a temporary library location?
The Library is open in the Community Centre with a small but varied collection including new titles. Computers, printing services, newspapers, magazines and paperbacks are located in the Community Centre café.
Will there be Programming?
Children's and Adult Programming will continue as normal. Family Story Time at 11:00am on Tuesdays and Babies & Books at 10:30am on Wednesdays. Other events can be found in our seasonal brochures.
When will Interlibrary loans be available?
Yes, interlibrary loans are available.
Can I place holds during the renovation?
Yes, we will have holds. If holds are placed on items that we have put in storage we will contact the patron and try to make alternative arrangements.
Will the drop box be available for returns?
Yes. The drop box will be available 24/7.
Will Technology Tutouring appointments be available?

Will we have access to other libraries during the renovation?
