We are excited to offer curbside pick-up while the library is closed!
We have designed a contactless system to get material to you in a safe way. All returned library material has been quarantined for at least three days before passing it to you, as suggested by health professionals.
We will do our best to get you something great to read, watch, or play.
Curbside Pick-up: How it works
- Reserve items for pick-up by placing holds through the online catalogue or our app, emailing [email protected] or calling 519-941-0610
- Staff will contact you, within 2 business days, when your order is ready to schedule a date and time for contactless pick-up
- Come to the Mill Street entrance of the library at the arranged pick-up time. Call 519-278-1103 to let us know you have arrived. Follow exterior signage on Mill Street to retrieve your materials
The library is requesting that only one member of each household arrive to pick-up materials and that everyone follows the directional signs posted at the main entrance.
What you need to know
- For now, curbside pick-up is only being offered at the Mill Street location
- Hours:10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Monday to Friday) – pick-up is by appointment
- Regular loan periods apply
- Mill Street drop box is open for returns 24/7 – we would prefer no bags
While both library locations will remain closed, the community is encouraged to explore all the services that the library offers. The digital collection includes eBooks, audiobooks, newspapers, magazines, and online courses with Mango Languages and Lynda.com. The library is also offering virtual programs for adults and children on the library’s YouTube channel.
Do I need to show my library card when I pick-up material?
No. We will comfirm your library card number when we set up the appointment for pick-up. Your items will be signed out on your account and placed in a fresh paper bag so everything is ready to go.
Can someone else pick-up me library material?
Yes. You can designate a family member or friend to pick-up for you.
Can I order an interlibrary loan (ILLO)?
Only items from the Orangeville Public Library will be available at this time. Loans between libraries have been suspended.
What if I don’t have a card?
You can register by completing this form (link). Virtual cards give you access to the library’s digital collection. Once the library reopens, the status of your library card can be changed to allow you to take out material.
Can you fax or print something for me? Can I use a computer?
The library continues to be closed to the public. These services are not available until further notice.
