Bolton, Ontario – Caledon Public Library (CPL) is pleased to announce, as of Friday, July 2, it will offer Expanded Patron Access at all branches with the exception of the Albion Bolton branch, which will be undergoing renovations.
“With the move to Step 2 of Ontario’s reopening plan, we are excited to have our customers back in our branches again.” said Colleen Lipp, CEO and Chief Librarian of Caledon Public Library. “Following provincial guidelines, customers will be welcome to browse our shelves, use our computer and printing capabilities, and above all, see their favourite library staff and neighbours in person.”
Masks will be required to enter any library branch and business hours will remain unchanged. Visit https://cpl.social/covid for current updates and availability of services.
Though renovations are now underway at the Albion Bolton branch, staff are committed to continue providing access to library collections through Contactless Holds Pickup.
“We appreciate the community’s patience during this work and are confident that the resulting refresh will be well worth the wait! It will improve CPL’s ability to meet the needs of our growing community and the shifting demands in library services,” said Lipp. “The benefit of these improvements will reach well beyond Bolton.”
In order to provide more effective and efficient service to CPL customers, planned improvements include the relocation and redesign of the service desk, creation of additional meeting space and consolidation of staff space. Fixtures, finishes and furnishing will be updated and public spaces reconfigured to offer a more welcoming space where residents, including students, seniors and small business owners, will feel comfortable learning, innovating and connecting.
Public access will be restricted during the first phase of the project however it is expected that some in-branch services will resume in early fall as part of the project’s second phase. The full renovation is anticipated to be completed in December. Progress of the project will be shared on CPL’s website at https://cpl.social/AlbionBoltonReno and also its social media channels.
