SAFETY

We're doing everything we can to make the library safe:

  • Masks are now required in all indoor public spaces, including the library.
    • We ask that you please wear your mask when visiting our branches.
    • If you don’t have a mask, we can provide you with one.
  • There are a limited number of people allowed in a branch at one time;
  • Food and drink are not permitted in the branches at this time;
  • Materials are quarantined before being put back on shelves;
  • We ask that customers place materials they've handled at the library in marked bins for quarantine;
  • Hand sanitizer is available to customers in multiple locations throughout our branches;
  • Sanitizing wipes are available to customers to disinfect equipment like computer keyboards before they use them;
  • We've installed sneeze guards, spaced things out and applied some one-way traffics paths for social distancing; and
  • We’ve developed cleaning protocols for our staff consistent with provincial requirements.

 

FINES

Fines continue to be waived until the end of the year!

  • So don't worry, and bring those books back! External book drops are open 24 hours. 
  • If you have lost an item, or you have questions about what you see on your account, give us a call to see how we can help you.
  • We encourage the use of contact-less payment for lost charges by debit or credit card.

Starting on January 1, 2021, RPL will no longer charge overdue fines for library materials! Learn more about that exciting change here.

 

VIRTUAL LIBRARY CARDS

If you registered for a library card between March 16 and July 9, 2020, you received a Virtual Library Card.

  • This type of card provides you with access to our digital collection, but not to our physical collection.
  • Please visit one of our branches with your ID so we can give you a free full-service library card. This will let you borrow from our large physical collection as well as continue to use our digital services to read, watch, listen, and learn from the comfort of your home.
