Reopening of the Library on March 9

As of Tuesday, March 9, Library members will once again be welcomed on site while respecting specific health and social distancing measures.

It should be noted that for the moment, the opening hours are reduced due to the curfew - see schedule below. It is also important to note that the Library will be closed daily between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to allow for daily disinfection.

Please take note of the following rules and guidelines applicable as of March 9, and until further notice:

  • Only a restricted number of users are allowed in the Library at the same time. Consequently, entry monitoring will be carried out at all times;

  • In order to facilitate the traceability of possible positive cases of COVID-19, all visitors must register at the entrance using their membership card;

  • Face coverings are mandatory inside the Library for all users and staff members;

  • Library members can choose their own books by browsing the shelves. However, in order to better manage the sharing of equipment and to limit the waiting time of users who wish to use the premises, access to furniture or study rooms is not possible at this time;

  • Two public access catalogues are available to facilitate research, but the computer room remains closed for the time being;

  • Consulting documents on site is not possible; they must be borrowed.

We recommend the visit of one person per family. However, if this is not possible, we ask members of the same family to stay together in order to limit contact between the different users.

It remains mandatory for Library users to return all their documents in the book chute since this allows for better control of the returned documents. A 24-hour quarantine is observed for all returned documents.

Reserved documents are now accessible from open shelves. They may be taken directly off the shelved to be borrowed from either the circulation desk or one of the self-checkout stations. Please note that a second self-checkout station has been added in the youth section.

Despite the restrictions associated with COVID-19, the Library staff is pleased to welcome users back inside the Library. We look forward to seeing you again!

Library Opening Hours:

Monday to Friday: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
