Library branches close during holiday season

All 29 branches of the Okanagan Regional Library will begin their annual holiday closure period.

All 29 branches of the Okanagan Regional Library will begin their annual holiday closure period from Wednesday, Dec. 23 and until Saturday, Jan. 2, 2016.

As of Dec. 2, the three-week loan period for physical items such as 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 feature film DVDs will be available for a three-week period starting Sunday, Dec. 13.

Loan periods will revert to normal when branches reopen.

Library book bins will be closed during this time.

The website, including the ORL’s catalogue and all digital resources, will continue to be accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout the branch closure.
