The Province has updated the guidance for COVID-19 restrictions that came into effect September 20th, 2021. https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-public-health-actions.aspx As part of the updated guidance, libraries are considered entities that need to be accessed by the public for daily living purposes, and as such are not included in the organizations/businesses that can implement the restrictions exemption program. Libraries are instead directed to take other steps to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Libraries must observe mandatory public health measures including:
1) Mandatory masking indoors
2) Maintaining 2 metres distancing between members of different households; additionally, attendees (library patrons) must be with household members only or 2 close contacts if they live alone, and
3) Library capacity is limited to 1/3 fire code occupancy. Please see above link for more details.
We are continuing with children’s programs and storytimes.
We are still offering curbside service and we have contactless delivery straight to your door inside the city limits. We are always happy to help with reader’s advisory, selecting items, and placing holds for you. We want to help wherever we can, so please contact us if we can help with anything. email@example.com or, 403-272-9025.
