What's New

Throughout July, library branches will be opening their doors to the public

by Library Staff | Jul 15, 2020
The Okanagan Regional Library will begin re-opening its branches to our patrons once again with Phase 3: Browse & Borrow service. The change will happen gradually within our 30 branches throughout July, replacing the Curbside Holds Pick-up service.
See if your library location is open and view our Phase 3: Browse & Borrow plan.
During this phase, patrons will be able to enter the library, browse our collection, use socially distanced computers, and borrow most materials.
Meeting rooms, meeting spaces, study rooms, public seating, and other gathering areas in the library will remain closed to the public.
We will also limit the number of patrons allowed in the library at once. Patrons are encouraged to select materials quickly, check them out using our self-checkouts, and leave to allow others to enter.  ORL CEO, Don Nettleton, asks that "visitors follow the outlined process and rules so that everybody stays healthy and safe."
Our online programming, including the ever-popular children's Summer Reading Club, which this year has gone virtual, will continue.
ORL staff are looking forward to seeing you in your library again while maintaining safe social distances.
