Library Closure

Chinook is excited to begin Curbside Pick-up at the end of June. Contact your local branch for more details, or read more here. In order to assist with efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, all branches remain closed for physical visiting and browsing. The Re-open Sask Plan has put public libraries into Phase 4.2, and we are preparing our branches and safety measures to open as soon as we can. In the meantime, please make use of our growing collection of online resources, or call us at (306) 773-3186 or (306) 778-2752 to find out how we can help you further.
