Meeting room rental

COVID19 Safety Protocols:
Under Ontario’s Roadmap to Reopen, the library re-opened meeting room bookings in Step 3, beginning July 16.
Masks or face coverings must be worn and physical distancing respected. See below for room capacity limits. Room rental fees, where applicable, have been adjusted due to the change in capacity. 

Effective October 5, everyone 12 years old and older must provide proof of vaccination (or a medical exemption) to use a meeting room. Booking a library meeting room for the provision of social services and delivering or supporting the delivery of court services or government services are excepted. If you need to get your proof of vaccination, library staff are happy to help. We are also providing free printing/laminating of vaccine receipts. Please just bring your health card with you!
