WMRL Contactless Book Delivery

March 25, 2020

To our patrons,

We at the Brandon Public Library want to be here for you during our closure in as many capacities as possible while still encouraging social distancing and taking every precaution. We are pleased to announce that we will begin a Contactless Book Delivery service next week (Tuesday, March 30th)!

We will be accepting a limited number of delivery requests each week and requests will be limited to a total of ten items or less (these can be a combination of children’s and adult books, magazines, graphic novels, audio books, etc.). Requests are subject to availability.

Deliveries will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays and patrons will be notified of a time window for their delivery in advance.  Once books are dropped off at doorsteps, they immediately become the responsibility of the patron (this includes books that are lost, stolen, or damaged in any way). Any library materials delivered during our closure are to remain with you at home until we reopen, we will ensure that all due dates are adjusted accordingly.

Please keep in mind that these deliveries are to be CONTACTLESS, for the health and safety of both our patrons and library staff. We ask that you remain inside of your home during drop off and wait until our delivery person has returned to their vehicle to come out and retrieve your materials.  Our staff will be following strict guidelines for handwashing and will wear gloves during deliveries; however, it is up to your discretion as to whether you want to receive physical library materials at this time.

Requests for Contactless Book Delivery can be placed via email to info@wmrl.ca  or by calling the library at 204-727-6648.

We look forward to serving you and fulfilling your reading needs in this new way!
