Curbside Service is temporarily suspended
We have made the difficult decision to stop our curbside service, effective today, Thursday April 15.
Our local health unit is at a critical situation and they need our help.
The Grey Bruce Health Unit has declared a critical threshold of COVID-19 cases in Grey Bruce. They have identified over 70 new confirmed cases across Grey Bruce in the last thirty-six hours with the potential to generate hundreds of additional close contacts.
Dr. Ian Arra says "Everyone across Grey Bruce needs to consider themselves a carrier for the next 48 hours until we reach all case and their contacts. It is a priority that everyone stay at home except for essential travel. If contacted by public health, be prudent in following any direction that is given. This is in addition to the Provincial Stay-At-Home Order."
The Library is fully supporting the request by keeping staff at home and doing what we can to keep people at home.
Library staff will be working from home where possible, and we will be available by telephone or e-mail if you need information – just leave us a message. It’s a scary time for all of us, and we are not sure how long we will be closed – but we are still here for you. If you have books or other material out at the moment, you can drop them off in the drop box - but please do not leave home just to return items. We will not charge overdue fines while we are closed. Library staff will take care of renewing items that are due soon, and you can call us at 519-364-1420 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you need your membership extended. Your safety is more important, so please stay home as much as possible.
