Service Announcement - April 28, 2021

Effective Wednesday, April 28, Eastern Counties Regional Library branches are closed to the public until further notice.

In accordance with public health directives ECRL libraries are still able to offer the public Curbside Pickup service. Staff will be available during their regularly scheduled hours and available to assist you by phone. Our stringent COVID-19 safety measures remain in place and help to ensure that our library collections are safe for public use. 

Please note, the Port Hawkesbury Library located in the SAERC building is closed for deep cleaning. We expect it will be able to reopen sometime the week of May 3rd. Port Hawkesbury Library users will not be able to return items to the Port Hawkesbury Civic Centre as it is currently closed to the public. Port Hawkesbury users should keep library items and we will renew your loans as needed. For assistance, please call our Headquarters location toll-free at 1-855-787-7323.
