Library Service: In-Person Browsing and Reservations

As of Monday, July 5, 2021 there are two ways to borrow physical books and DVDs. You can come into the building weekdays 10:00 am to 6:00 pm and select your own materials from our shelves – mask wearing and distancing required. Or you can reserve through the online catalogue or by phone and make an appointment for pickup.

The reading room and computer centre will remain closed for the summer. We fervently hope the COVID risk continues to decline and we’ll be able to welcome you back inside our building for more activities by the end of the summer.

Our staff are always pleased to provide information and help by phone and email: 514-935-7344 or rfhoyt@atwaterlibrary.ca.

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.
