Phase 2 Reopening with Vax Proof; Group Events Online

Starting MONDAY, October 18, 2021, we’re requiring visitors to our building to show proof of vaccination in addition to wearing a mask and distancing. Our staff and volunteers will be scanning vax QR codes.

That’s also the date we’re expanding reopening beyond library borrowing to include the computer centre and reading room where chairs will be widely spaced and seating limited. The auditorium is being renovated and will be closed for the rest of the year.

Our hours are Monday to Friday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

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.
