Libraries ready for holidays

All 29 branches of Okanagan Regional Library will begin their annual holiday closure period beginning Dec. 23

All 29 branches of Okanagan Regional Library will begin their annual holiday closure period beginning Dec. 23 and resume normal operating hours Jan. 2.

As of Dec. 2, the three-week loan period for books, CDs and magazines was extended to five weeks to ensure borrowers could keep their items over the closure. One-week loans such as Quick Reads and DVDs will be available for a three-week period starting Dec. 13.

Loan periods will revert back to normal when branches reopen in the new year. If unsure, anyone can check due dates of their items by logging into their online account. Book bins will be closed during this time. Do not return items until the library is open in 2016.

The website, including the ORL’s catalogue and all digital resources, will continue to be accessible throughout the branch closure.
