Hi library friend

We're ready to start Curbside Pick up

How it works:


Requesting items

Not sure what to request? Ask us for a GRAB BAG. Let us know by phone or email what you want, for example 3 Western novels, books on Lawn Care and Growing Annuals, or 5 Picture Books and we’ll pick a selection for you. 

Arranging Pickup

Pickup sessions will take place on weekday afternoons to start. We will increase the number of sessions as needed.

Pickup is by appointment only

  • When your items are ready for pick-up, the library staff will contact you by phone or email and an appointment will be set up for contactless pick-up.
  • Staff can make the appointment for you or you can make the appointment yourself using the online appointment system, which you may link to your calendar.
  • Details as to the pick-up process will be provided when users are contacted.
  • At the appointed pick-up time, physical distancing measures must be taken. Pick-up will take place outdoors on the east (clock tower) side of the building.

Returning borrowed items

  • Returning items must be returned through the library drop box beside the West (10th Avenue) entrance only.
  • No returns will be accepted at the pick up appointment.This is to keep the items separate, to be quarantined until they are safe to handle.  
  • All library materials will be sanitized and quarantined for a minimum of 72 hours. Staff will observe all necessary safety precautions in handling materials.

Terrific Total Tally for Canadian Tire Hanging Basket Sale

We didn’t dare hope that the 2020 Hanging Basket Sale in support of the Hanover Library would be a huge success. After all, at the beginning of May, the store was still on curbside pickup only, and what with physical distancing measures, we didn’t think as many people as usual would come out to buy baskets.

But thanks to Dale and Cathy Cousins and their wonderful staff at the store, and their willingness to find a way to make this work, we are thrilled to announce that the sale was a smash hit! They had it run the whole month of May instead of just the long May weekend so people wouldn’t crowd into the store, and thanks to this ingenious solution, the library will be receiving the same amount as last year: $4,099!

This funding will help the library in providing our services to the community, including the extra money we put into making online resources available for everyone during the closed period.

Edwin Haas, one of the Library Board trustees, said this: “With what is going on in the world today I am so thankful for the connections we have made that are so strong that they still go above and beyond for us. What an amazing partner / friend we have in Canadian Tire Hanover”. Thanks so much to Dale and Cathy and their staff, and to all of you who purchased hanging baskets during the month of May. You’re the best!
