    KEEPING OUR BRANCHES CLOSED SUPPORTS PHYSICAL DISTANCING

    Working in close collaboration with our partners at the City of Brampton and Peel Public Health, we are today sharing the update that all Brampton Library branches will remain closed until further notice to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ‘plank’ the curve of contagion.

    Knowing how much you rely on our branch services makes our decision especially difficult, but all of us must practice physical distancing at this critical time.

    Some important take-aways:

    • If you have borrowed library materials, please do not return them to our drop boxes until we reopen, overdue fines will not be charged on these items
    • Our ‘holds’ service is not currently available. It will resume when we reopen

    While we cannot interact with you in person, our online library service continues. Our Digital Library offers Brampton Library cardholders a full range of eResources, eAudiobooks, eBooks for all ages, online learning, and more.  You will need your library card to get started. If you don’t have one, click here to get one today.. There are no restrictions to digital access when you sign up online.

    We miss you and look forward to welcoming you back! Please keep in touch at chieflib@bramlib.on.ca. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @bramptonlibrary. Share what you’re reading and let us know how you are coping. We will post regular updates here and on social media.

    Sincerely,

    Jaipaul Massey-Singh, Brampton Library Board Chair

    Susan Bartoletta, Interim CEO
