Summer at the Pinawa Public Library

Summer at the Pinawa Public Library

Hello patrons,

The board and staff of the Pinawa Public Library are happy to announce that we will be returning to our regular summer hours on Thursday July 2nd, and that we are planning a summer program for the children. As can be expected, we have to make a number of adjustments to our normal customer service in order to do so.

In order to eliminate confusion and make our service as efficient as possible we ask that you read this carefully (and keep a copy to refer to) before coming into, phoning, or emailing the library for further information.

Our Summer Hours are:

Monday                      6:30 pm- 9:00 pm

Tuesday – Thursday 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Friday                         1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Sunday                       1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
