Bruce County library services modified during shutdown

 

On April 3, Bruce County Public Library services were modified for the duration of the provincial shutdown. Library Services will be provided curb-side, with the exception of computer access which will be by appointment.

Library patrons can place orders for Curb-side Pickup by placing holds in the online catalogue, calling or emailing their local branch, or filling out a form on the library website. Patrons can request specific materials, or staff can pack a selection of materials based on books the patron has read or genres the patron enjoys. We also offer grab-and-go bags, pre-packaged titles on appealing themes. Not sure what you’re looking for? Check out our staff recommendations on YouTube!

Need a library card to access materials during the shutdown? We can provide this curbside with ID, or you can visit www.library.brucecounty.on.ca to get a temporary card and discover our wide variety of online services.

When picking up items, call the branch number posted on the door and our friendly staff will bring your items out. Please be mindful of maintaining a minimum 6’ distance from library staff.

Returns can be placed in the book drop at any of the library’s 17 branches. All returned materials will be isolated for 72 hours before being checked in. There will be no fines for late materials during this period.

Staff are pleased to continue offering exciting online programs for all ages, including our Virtual Mini Comic-Con®. This event offers a visit with Rey from Star Wars, trivia, and follow-at-home activities and runs Monday, April 12 to Friday, April 16.

From streaming movies to digital newspapers, DVDs to large print books, Bruce County Public Library offers something for everyone. And it’s all free with your library card!
