Outlook for September to December 2021

Atwater Library staff and volunteers are welcoming library borrowers inside our building on weekdays from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm – mask wearing and distancing required. Access is limited to the stacks and circulation desk with the reading room and computer centre remaining closed. As always there is high-quality free WiFi outside on our grounds.

We’re taking a cautious approach to resuming in-person group activities. We”ll see how the vaccine passport rollout goes and monitor COVID statistics before scheduling the reopening of our computer centre and reading room. The auditorium will be out of bounds for the rest of 2021 as we have further upgrades done.

We’re offering a wealth of activities online. See the EVENTS column on the right.

Our New Elevator

We invite you to watch a short video showing the accessibility upgrades completed during the closedown. Join the men in charge of our construction for a tour. Enter through the new accessible door by Tupper Street and ride in our beautiful new elevator to the upper floors.

ONLINE AUCTION

Our main fundraising activity in 2021 is an Online Auction, building on the success of last year’s virtual event. Bidding runs from October 27 to November 7, 2021.

Volunteers are now requesting sponsorships as well as goods and services to offer for bids.

Our 2020 Online Auction raised over $50,000 for our community programs and services. That’s a vital chunk of our modest budget, and we’re deeply grateful to everyone who contributed.
