Library Closure

Caring for the health and well-being of staff and library patrons is very important to Chinook libraries. Therefore, in order to assist with efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, all branches are currently closed. The Re-open Sask Plan has put public libraries into Phase 4, which currently has no date. We cannot wait to prepare our libraries for your return. 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.
