Following a successful re-opening trial at Budimir, Central, Local History and Riverside branches, Windsor Public Library will be re-opening the remainder of our locations on Tuesday, September 8.
Services will resume at Bridgeview, Chisholm, Fontainebleau, Forest Glade, Muir and Seminole. Normal operational parameters will be in effect. Customers will have direct access to library resources and computers, although meeting rooms will remain closed. Customers will be asked to self-screen at the door and social distancing will be expected.
Please note, by an order made under Subsection 4(1) of the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, Mayor Dilkens has declared that a non-medical face covering must be worn in public spaces – including library public spaces.
As branches re-open, customers are welcome to come in and pick up their holds again as Curbside Pickup and Home Delivery will stop.
Customers unable to enter a branch can reach out to explore other options by calling 519-255-6770, Extension 4404 or by email.
