Welcome Back to Mission Branch!

Mission Branch is open to the public as part of the Okanagan Regional Library's Phase 3 "Browse and Borrow" stage of service. We are located at the Capital News Centre, 4105 Gordon Drive, in the south end of Kelowna.  

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

  1. All visitors and staff are required to wear a mask that fully covers their mouth and nose at all times. 
  2. Please maintain a “social distance” of 2 metres from staff members and other patrons.
  3. 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.
  4. Patrons are asked to use the self-checkout terminals to borrow materials. Staff can help you get started.
  5. No seating, tables or study rooms are available.
  6. Patrons may use the internet terminals for up to one hour per day.
  7. All in-branch programs are suspended for the time being. Please check the events calendar for listings of online programming events.
  8. Exam invigilation is available on a limited basis. To book an exam, contact Richard at rkicksee@orl.bc.ca
  9. Magazines, including current issues, are available to borrow for up to 4 weeks. We ask that you not read the magazines while you are at the Branch.
  10. We are now selling paperback novels and old issues of magazines that have been withdrawn from our collection. 

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,
Richard Kicksee
Mission Branch Head Librarian
