Oliver library now open for ‘browse and borrow’

Oliver library now open for ‘browse and borrow’
Times-Chronicle Staff
Most libraries across the region are now open, including the Oliver branch in its new location at the back of Oliver Place Mall.
People can now enter their community library and browse its collection and self-checkout books, DVDs, and other materials.
 
Public health protocols are being followed in each library, including: computers being spaced apart to ensure physical distancing; acrylic barriers have been installed at the front desk; hand sanitizing stations have been set up in each branch for patron use; books are to be returned at the external book return areas only and will be quarantined for 72 hours; all libraries have set occupancy limits. These limits are posted at the library entrance; and visitors to the library are encouraged to wear a mask.
 
During the browse and borrow stage, meeting rooms, meeting spaces, study rooms, public seating, and other gathering areas in the library will be closed to the public. Customers are encouraged to select materials quickly, check them out using self-checkouts if possible, and leave to allow others to enter.
In Oliver’s new location, there are no chairs to sit on, except at computer stations.
Online programming—including the ever-popular children’s summer reading club, which this year has gone virtual—will continue. Check out the prizes, too . . . they are cool.
Visit the website www.orl.bc.ca for details on virtual programming and other online services.
