All branches of Windsor Public Library will be closed on Monday, September 19 to honour the life and legacy of her majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

WPL will join with the City of Windsor in marking September 19 as a Day of Mourning.  This coincides with Her Late Majesty’s State Funeral in the United Kingdom, and the end of the official period of mourning in Canada.

There will be a national commemorative ceremony to honour the life and service of Her Majesty. The ceremony will be held at the Christ Church Cathedral in Ottawa on September 19, 2022, at 11:00 a.m. It will be preceded by a memorial parade and a 96-gun salute – one shot for each year of Her Majesty’s life – and followed by a flypast of Royal Canadian Air Force CF‑18s. The ceremony, including the memorial parade, will be broadcast live for everyone to watch.

There will be an outdoor public screening of the funeral at City Hall Square, beginning at 5:45 a.m. The lobby of City Hall will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to allow residents to attend and sign the book of condolences on site.
