Trent Hills Community
Premier Doug Ford recently announced that libraries could reopen for curbside pickup as of Tuesday May 19 /2020. Although this is exciting news for our library community, we feel that moving to curbside pickup will need be a very slow process to maintain the highest levels of safety for patrons and staff.
The Trent Hills Public Library Board met yesterday to discuss our Curbside Pickup Plan and we hope to launch, beginning with the Campbellford Branch Library, sometime next week. More information will be available soon with instructions to follow. These instructions will be available on the website https://trenthillslibrary.ca/ on Facebook and by calling 705-653-3611.
These are unprecedented times for everyone and I just want to take a moment to recognize and thank all of the Trent Hills Public Library Staff and Board Members for their amazing dedication, commitment and creativity during this difficult and challenging time. And I would like to thank everyone in the community for your support and patience.
We are all working hard to bring you back to a Library that is safe for everyone to enjoy. And we hope that in the interim you have been able to enjoy some of the new content we have added to our online systems!
