Message from the CEO
As I write this, we are preparing once again to welcome people back inside our libraries. We have heard from many of you how much you miss being able to visit the library, and we miss you too!

We are aligning with the Province’s slow and steady re-opening plan with computer appointments and photocopier/ printer access in addition to take-out service during Step 1, and then open to the public for browsing and studying at a 25% capacity limit in Step 2 hopefully at the beginning of July. Be sure to check our website or social media for service updates. Indoor capacity limits increase for libraries in the final Step 3 which hopefully will be around the end of July if all goes well.

Safety protocols of face masks, physical distancing, and quarantining returned library materials will continue to remain in place to keep us all safe and to try to prevent a backslide into a fourth wave.

Last but not least, our Library Board Chair, Doug Thomson, was named Oshawa’s Senior of the Year! For the past 6 years, Doug has been a member of our Library Board and is currently serving as Chair. Retired from the printing and publishing industry, Doug graciously gives his time to causes he believes in and is an enthusiastic promoter of literacy and life-long learning. Congratulations Doug!

Take care and stay safe,

Frances Newman
Chief Executive Officer
