Library Closure

Valued patrons and community members; 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, we are closing all branches as of March 16th. Libraries across the province are waiving late fines during this period. A variety of online services, including the province-wide Library2go collection of e-books and e-audiobooks, are available to patrons. Please contact Chinook HQ with concerns or questions at 1-306-773-3186, Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm.
