All Wellington County Library Branches Moving to Curbside Pick Up Tomorrow

Posted On Monday November 30, 2020

WELLINGTON COUNTY, ON - Beginning Tuesday, December 1, all County library branches will be closed to the public but will continue to offer curbside pick up to residents.

“The number of COVID-19 cases in the County are rising at an alarming rate,” said Warden Kelly Linton. “In consultation with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health, we have made the difficult decision to close all branches. We will still be offering curbside pick-up of items. Cases continue to be linked to gatherings and gathering spaces. We hope this proactive measure helps slow the spread of COVID-19 across the County.”

“In addition to our curbside pick-up service, the Wellington County library has wonderful online resources available for our residents to enjoy,” said Rebecca Hine, Chief Librarian.
All branches will remain closed for the foreseeable future. County officials in consultation with Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health, will continue to review the public health data and will re-open the branches once the curve begins to flatten.

“I continue to urge all residents to follow public health guidelines,” said Warden Linton. “We all need to work together to slow the spread COVID-19 in our communities.”
