BRANT COUNTY – All County of Brant Library branches have now reopened to in-person services, collection browsing, computer use, in-branch holds, pickups, and more.
Brant County Mayor, David Bailey made his rounds to each community on opening day, Tuesday, August 18th, to welcome visitors back to the branches.
Brant County Library CEO Kelly Bernstein says throughout the COVID-19 closure, many residents expressed how they missed visiting the library. While online and curbside services have been popular, nothing replaces a face-to-face connection.
Bernstein says the safety and wellbeing of library staff and patrons are paramount, so several new protocols are in place. She adds virtual services will also continue, including the personalized Book-a-Talk service, online programs for children and adults, and curbside pickup. The Mobile Library Van will also resume service later this year.
The County of Brant Public Library has branches in Burford, Glen Morris, Paris, Scotland-Oakland, and St. George. New hours vary by location, so patrons are encouraged to call or visit brantlibrary.ca for details.
