Library closes for holidays

Summerland and other branches of Okanagan Regional Library will be closed over the holidays.

Remember to stock up on books from Summerland library before the holidays.

All branches of the Okanagan Regional Library, including Summerland, will be closed during the holiday season beginning Friday, Dec. 23 until Monday, Jan. 2.

Branches will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 3. Hours are posted on the ORL’s website at www.orl.bc.ca/branches.

During the closure all book bins will be locked for security reasons and any items damaged or missing as a result of being left outside of branches will be the customer’s responsibility. However, items will not be due over the closure; loan periods are lengthened so that items are not due until branches re-open.

The ORL website, online catalogue and digital resources will be accessible during the branch closure.

From the ORL homepage you can click through to the catalogue, choosing either “standard” or the new “enhanced” catalogue with social networking features, and then login to your account.

Also on the homepage are links to Library to Go for eBooks and Audiobooks, Tumblebooks online children’s books and downloadable music.
