In response to the Province of Ontario’s second declaration of emergency this week, Brampton Library’s Curbside Pickup services remain the same. Materials returned through our 24-hour external dropboxes located at each branch are quarantined for 72 hours before they are processed and put back into circulation.

Service Changes Support Reducing Community Spread of COVID-19
The Province of Ontario has announced that, “A provincewide shutdown will help interrupt or slow current community transmission, reduce mobility and allow our health care and public health systems that are reaching critical limits to recover briefly and catch-up.” During this period, libraries are able to offer Curbside Pickup. Brampton Library is pleased to confirm that all 8 branch libraries will offer this service, at varying times, each week.
Effective Monday, December 28, 2020, our in-person services will be limited to contactless Curbside Pickup services only, for the duration of the province-wide shutdown. Our services will be reevaluated when these restrictions are lifted.
While our branches are closed, there are still multiple ways to access our materials and use your Library:
- Place holds through our website and watch for notifications that your held items, including Book Bundles, are ready before stopping by your preferred branch during our curbside hours to pick them up.
- Discover what’s new, scan ISBNs, and place holds using our new mobile app! It’s a free download from iOS and Google Play. Click here to learn more about the Brampton Library app.
- Stop by your preferred branch during curbside hours to discover our new Grab ‘n’ Go bags. Click here for information on Book Bundles and Grab ‘n’ Go.
Curbside Pickup is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here for our Curbside Pickup hours of operation and instructions on how to place holds.
When you arrive, watch for our bright green signs and prepare to provide the last 4 digits of your library card. Click here to apply for your own Brampton Library card.
