The Ontario government has announced Niagara will be moving into the 'Grey' zone of the colour-coded COVID-19 restriction framework starting on Tuesday, February 16th. The St. Catharines Public Library will continue to offer contactless curbside holds pickup service with reduced service hours during the week of February 16th through February 20th. Appointments for holds pickup are not needed. Please ensure you have received your hold notification prior to arrival.

Starting Monday, February 22nd, in addition to curbside holds pickup, the Central Library only will also offer appointment-based computer access for a maximum of 30 minutes.  Please call 905-688-6103 x210 to book an appointment.

All book drops will remain open 24/7. Please note Port Dalhousie branch does not have a book drop available. All returned items will continue to be quarantined for 96-hours and sanitized before being put back into circulation. Returned items will remain on your library card until they are checked in after the quarantine period.

For renewals, login to your patron account or call our automated renewal system at 905-687-4832.

While using the curbside holds pickup service, all patrons will be required to:

  • Wear a mask
  • Maintain social distancing
  • Follow rules and procedures in place

We are working hard to ensure the safe delivery of library services. We look forward to offering more services again when provincial restrictions are lifted.
