• Reopening soon! Chinguacousy, Four Corners and Springdale Branches
    Reopening - June 21

    Written by Todd Kyle

    Published: June 17, 2021

    Brampton Library is happy to announce that in accordance with Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen guidelines, we will begin a phased reopening on June 21, 2021.

    On June 21, Chinguacousy, Four Corners, and Springdale Branch Libraries will reopen for in-branch pickup of materials and access to computers, photocopiers, and printers. Capacity will be limited to 15% and these branches will close every 90 minutes for 30-minute cleaning periods. There will no longer be a 3-day quarantine period on returned materials and returns will continue to be accepted through the 24/7 external drop boxes at all locations. All other branches will continue to offer Curbside Pickup only. Regardless of your branch, you will receive an email or voicemail notification that the materials you have put on hold have been set aside for you to pick up. There’s nothing additional that you need to do.

    As we have done throughout the pandemic, Brampton Library continues to place the highest priority on the safety of our customers and staff. As Ontario moves into the next steps of reopening, we will continue to assess the situation in planning for the opening of our remaining branches, with more capacity and a return to regular services, including browsing of collections, reading and studying, and group meetings and programs. We are keen to welcome you back into our facilities, to really connect with our staff and the larger community, but only when we can assure you that everything has been done to control the risk and make your Library visit a safe, healthy, and happy one.

    Don’t forget, our Digital Library remains open to serve you, and you can find out about virtual programs for all ages and interests in our Calendar of Events. To keep up to date, you can subscribe to our email updates and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You can also chat with us in real time on any page of our website. And if you haven’t already, download our mobile app from the Apple Store or Google Play. Click here for more details about our app.
