BRANDON

The Brandon Public Library will continue to offer quick & easy Hold Pick-Ups. Patrons are encouraged to use our website catalogue to place holds on the items they wish to pick up. When placing holds, patrons will have the option to select their pick-up location and can choose from “Brandon Public Library” for our downtown location or “Shoppers Mall Library,” depending on where they wish to collect their materials from. Once the requested items have become available at the selected branch, library staff will contact patrons to let them know that they can pick up their items during open hours. Please wait for confirmation from our staff before attempting to pick up holds.
As of June 1st, deliveries are limited to those with special circumstances (i.e. those required to quarantine, individuals who are sick, homebound individuals, etc.). If you think you may qualify for this, let us know and we will arrange a delivery. Please be aware that once orders are dropped off for delivery they immediately become the responsibility of the patron, including any fines that may be incurred for lost, stolen, or damaged materials. By proceeding with a Contactless delivery request you are agreeing to these terms.
 
For more information, contact us at info@nullwmrl.ca or by calling the Brandon Public Library. You can reach the Downtown branch (located in the Town Centre) at 204-727-6648 or the Shoppers Mall branch at 204-725-9901.

Pick-ups and deliveries will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 pm to 4 pm and patrons will be notified of a time in advance.

For deliveries, 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).

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 hand washing and sanitizing, however, it is up to your discretion as to whether you want to receive physical library materials at this time. It is recommended that upon receiving your books, that you quarantine them for at least 24 hours.
