No programs, on-location services, or events will be at this time at any branch location. All building access has been closed to the public including booked spaces through the library or township. More info can be found at the 1000 Islands Township website.

Please keep all materials at home until the library is reopened.

Even though we are closed we encourage everyone to use out digital services as they are always available!

The Library will continue to work with Township and health officials as the situation progresses over the coming weeks. Check back to this spot or our Facebook for any updates.
