Our “Red Zone” Services: Online + Library Takeout

In accordance with the “red zone” pandemic measures imposed by the Government of Quebec to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the Atwater Library is providing services online and by phone, but we’re not admitting people to our building from October 1, 2020 until the “red zone” ends.

We are offering takeout library service. Members can reserve paper books and DVDs through our online catalogue, by email and by phone. Our staff will fill the orders and hand out packages at our Atwater Avenue entrance two times a week:

– Fridays 3:00 to 6:00 pm
– Tuesdays 3:00 to 6:00 pm

Calling Seniors with a Story to Tell!

This summer we started a new year-long project to engage you in creatively documenting and sharing accounts of important life experiences.

Our tech-savvy team patiently guide you in using digital technology for text, still photos, art, audio and video. And we help find ways for participants to digitize and preserve old-format content.

Our project work is all online because of the pandemic.

We have wonderful partners, including Concordia University’s engAGEand Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling, the Montreal West Public Library and Suoni Per Il Popolo.

If you or your community organization would like to get involved or want more information, please contact our project coordinator, Eric Craven, at eric@atwaterlibrary.ca.
