Pinawa Public Library Pick up/Drop off services begin Tuesday May 11

Unfortunately, due to Covid Restrictions, we are closed to the public once again. We hope it is only for 3 weeks, but keep an eye on our website and facebook pages for updates.

The good new is that, as Sophie has finished her university term and is able to help us out, we will resume interlibrary loans through this period. Yaa Sophie!!!  Call the library and leave a message if you would like to order an interlibrary loan. We'll get back to you about it.

Many of you know the routine by now, but for those who are uncertain about the pickup/dropoff procedures, please carefully read the information below:

To reserve items, the following options are available:

  1. Search our website: https://pinawapubliclibrary.com/ to browse our collection, check availability, and reserve items.
  2. Email the library with your reservation requests: email@pinawapubliclibrary.com
  3. Leave a message on the answering machine at the library 204-753-2496. We will return your call when we have time to assist you. 

Schedule a pick up time:

After your items have been reserved, send us an email or leave a message on our answering machine to schedule a time slot to pick up your items. We will reply after we have had time to prepare your order. 

Pick Up

Items can be picked up during your scheduled time slot at the back door of the Community Centre (across from the arena)

You can let us know when you arrive in one of two ways:

  • Call 204-753-2496 from your cell phone
  • Ring the handicap buzzer for the back door

Please stand back a distance of two meters while we bring your order out and place it on a cart by the door. After we go back into the building, you can pick up your items.

Returns
