Welcome Back to Mission Branch!

Starting Thursday, July 23, Mission Branch will re-open to the public as part of the Okanagan Regional Library's Phase 3 "Browse and Borrow" stage of service.

Our open hours will return to those of the pre-COVID-19 time, and the return slots at the west side of the building will be open 24/7. The "Curbside" service will not continue.

Due to the continuing risk of COVID-19 infection, there will be several changes to branch services:

1.  No items can be returned indoors. Please use the slots on the west side of the building.

2.  Patrons will enter the library from inside the Capital News Centre, but exit the library through the door in the Children’s area. A maximum of 33 people will be allowed into the library at one time.

3.  Patrons are asked to use the self-checkout terminals to borrow materials. Staff can help you get started.

4.  There will be no exam invigilation or interlibrary loan services.

5.  Newspapers and magazines will not be available for reading or check-out.

6.  No seating, tables or study rooms will be available.

7.   We will not be accepting payment for fines or damaged materials. Patrons can pay online with PayPal or a credit card through the Library’s “My Account” link at orl.bc.ca .

8.  Patrons may use the internet terminals for up to one hour per day.

9.   All in-branch programs remain suspended for the time being. Please check the events calendar for listings of online programming events.

10.  Please maintain a “social distance” of 2 metres from staff members and other patrons.

We regret the inconvenience that these restrictions will cause, but join you in hoping that we will be able to return to full service soon.

Thank you.

Please take some time to review our many programmed events. All programs at the Mission library branch are free of charge. Children 8 and under must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian at all times.

When the library is closed, there are book return drops located on the west side of the building, below the Library sign. The drops are open 24 hours a day, except during the Easter and Christmas closures.
