Modified Services: Plan

Our Plan for Modifed Services
We are happy to announce that these plans for zero-contact modified services are launching November 10th!

We are continuously communicating with dozens of other public libraries and provincial public library associations. We review the evidence-based literature for best-practices to design and offer safe, zero-contact modified services. 

We have you, the community, at the center of these modified, zero-contact services planned and in the planning stage.
