We are in the Browse & Borrow phase of our Phased Re-opening Plan. All library locations are open! (Exception: Our UBCO location remains closed to the public until further notice).

Guidelines for libraries and library visitors, issued by the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC), state that the risk of transmission of COVID-19 on library materials is very low, and that evidence does not require libraries to quarantine or disinfect their items. Given this guidance the ORL will no longer be quarantining library material. This not only frees up library space for better purposes, it also frees up staff time and reduces the number of times staff are handling items.
Okanagan Regional Library has completed a COVID-19 Safety Plan in accordance with WorkSafe BC.
