Libraries to partially reopen!

Libraries to partially reopen!

Libraries will be reopening on a limited basis starting Monday, December 7.

While libraries have been closed over the past three weeks, we have heard from residents that they would like to pick-up and return materials.  In response, the City will be providing contactless holds pick-up and return services at 10 library branches, in alignment with Provincial Public Health Orders:

Libraries that will be offering contactless holds pick-up and returns

Public hours of operation will be Monday, Tuesday, and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Service at these libraries will be for contactless holds pick-up and return services only.  Customers will not be able to enter branches.  Holds may be placed using the library’s online catalogue or mobile app. Library staff are available to assist with this process through Winnipeg Public Library’s Ask Us service.

Customers will be asked to phone the library when they arrive to pick-up their holds.  Staff and customers are required to wear a mask.  Customers should use the self-assessment checklist before arriving at the buildings to pick-up holds. 

Winnipeg Public Library continues to deliver online programs and services, which includes maintaining an extensive online eLibrary of digital media, eBook access, and maintaining the Ask Us service.
