RPL and the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan

We’re looking carefully at the conditions for each phase of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan, and making our own plans for a phased re-opening of our branches, when restrictions on public gatherings begin to lift.

Although we don’t yet know when we will re-open, we know it will be during later phases of the re-opening plan. However, we are planning ahead and looking at all of our options for service delivery, to find unique ways to make our services and spaces available, while keeping our staff and customers safe.

In the meantime, we continue to adapt and grow our online programs, materials and services to serve you better in these uncertain times:

  • We’re offering school resource presentations for teachers, parents, and virtual classrooms;
  • We’ve streamlined our website to focus on our online offerings;
  • We’re offering more online programming;
  • We’re adding more items to our digital collection of materials, and
  • We’re creating Do-It-Yourself video tutorials for fun activities you can do at home.

If you don’t have a library card right now, I invite you to sign up online and join the thousands of new digital cardholders who’ve discovered RPL’s online offerings since we closed our doors in March.

If you need assistance with your library card or account, or just have a general question about the library, staff are still available to help you from 10:00am to 6:00pm, Monday to Saturday, and from 1:00 to 5:00pm on Sunday. Call us at 376-777-6000 or email us at askalibrarian@reginalibrary.ca.

Stay safe,

Jeff Barber, Library Director and CEO
