Keeping our libraries safe, and open, is a joint effort by Okanagan Regional Library Management, Staff, and Our Valued Customers. We invite you to work with us to keep our libraries safe.
On November 19, 2020, the Provincial Health Officer issued new province wide COVID-19 Restrictions.
Libraries are able to stay open and serve you with a few new requirements and diligent attention to our already existing safety measures.
Masks are now required to be worn in all indoor public spaces, and that includes libraries. See below for additional information about masks and COVID-19
Thank-you. Your cooperation helps us keep our libraries safe and open at this challenging time.
Okanagan Regional Library has completed a COVID-19 Safety Plan in accordance with WorkSafe BC.
