Curbside Pick Up/Return Service
Starting Tuesday, May 26, 2020 the Library will be offering curbside pick up/return at our Foresters Falls Branch located at 2022 Foresters Falls Road, Foresters Falls.
Patrons will be able to check our online catalogue at www.whitewaterregion.ca/library to see what is on the shelves at the Cobden and Foresters Falls Branches. No books from the Beachburg Branch can be loaned out at this time. Books can be reserved by placing a hold on the books you would like through our catalogue; emailing the Library at email@example.com; or calling 613-646-2543. Please note that we are limiting requests to five books at a time.
Once we receive your request we will put the books together and then contact you to let you know that your request is ready and when you can pick them up. There will be no browsing allowed at the library and the public access computers are not available for use. At the same time that you are picking up new books you can also return your loans or use our return boxes located at each branch.
The service will be available during the following hours:
Tuesday 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Thursday 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 am to 12:00 pm
PLEASE NOTE: Curbside pickup, hours and other services may change at any time during this closure Updates will be posted on our website and social media platforms as developments occur.
Returned materials will be cleaned, and quarantined for a period of time, before being placed back on the shelves. Although we strive to sanitize and practice safe handling of materials, The Whitewater Region Public Library cannot guarantee the sanitization of library items. Please handle them with caution.
Patrons should wash their hands before and after handling books and other items, avoid touching their face while reading and to avoid sneezing and coughing onto items.
