Early Learning Library

We understand that everyone is concerned about the situation with COVID-19 and wondering how it will affect our daily work and family life.

It is our obligation to support the measures being taken by public health to mitigate the risk of spreading the virus to the most vulnerable in our population.

Our goal is to do whatever we can to keep staff and the public as safe as possible while providing essential limited services to our clients where we can.

Library will be closed until further notice. All items currently on loan will be renewed and fines will not be accrued during our closure period. Please do not return or renew any items until we contact you.  Thank you for your support and understanding during these uncertain times.
