Building Still Closed, Library Loans with Pickup at Atwater Entrance

Phase 1 of our pandemic reopening plan is a resumption of loans of physical books and DVDs with pickup at our main entrance at scheduled times. Public access to our building will have to wait until later when necessary preparations are made.

We are inviting reservations online and by phone for physical materials.

Steps to reserve:

• Browse the online catalogue and make your selections.
• Or phone our Head Librarian at 514-935-7344 weekdays 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Pickups at our Atwater Avenue entrance doors are possible, starting June 2, twice a week:

TUESDAYS 3:00 to 5:00 pm

FRIDAYS 3:00 to 5:30 pm

Materials have to be reserved by the day before. Our Head Librarian will notify each borrower of the pickup time by email or phone.

The loan period for DVDs and books is lengthened from two weeks to three weeks.

And the maximum number of DVDs that may be borrowed at once is increased from 3 to 5.

Meantime, our staff, working from home, are providing other services we can offer during the closure, including by internet, email and phone.

We would love to hear from you.


We encourage our members to avail of our eBooks and digital audiobooks.
