Policy Statement

For patrons who are confined to home or other facilities, or for whom access to the library is extremely difficult, the library will assign a volunteer to coordinate delivery of books and other materials to the patron and to pick those materials up for return to the library.

Policy Statement

Because the library is primarily run by volunteers and the professional librarians have limited time, it is not possible to conduct extensive research for library patrons. As time permits, the staff will assist users in the use of the library resources and provide referral to other community and provincial resources.

Policy Statement

The Library attempts to provide programs of interest to its community. There are regular programs for children and programs for teens and adults as time and interest permit. The programs may be provided by library staff or by outside agencies with the approval of the Chief Librarian or designate. Programs are non-denominational, non-profit, and non-political.
