MEDIA RELEASE

Updated Library Service Due to Provincial Lockdown

As the Province prepares for lockdown, Chatham-Kent Public Library is moving all operating hours toward Curbside Service at all library locations as of December 28. For the detailed hours of Curbside Service, please contact your local branch or visit CKPL online at www.ckpl.ca.

Please return all library materials to outside book returns only. While Covid protocols are in place, items like Launchpads and Binge Boxes can be returned through the book returns. CKPL will continue to quarantine all returns for a minimum of 72 hours.

A reminder that books will be checked out for 3 weeks, Express Reads will be relaunching and check out for 1 week, magazines and DVDs will return to a 1 week loan period. Library staff will be glad to review this information with you as needed.

All library overdue fees will be reinstated on January 2, 2021. If you have library materials that have been checked out since before CKPL’s closure, please return them to your nearest branch at your earliest convenience.

Having trouble with your card? It may be expired! If you have questions about CKPL’s new hours, overdue fees or your account status, please “Ask CKPL” by phone at 519.354.2940, text at 519.401.7174, chat on Facebook @CKPLibrary or email CKPL at cklibrary@chatham-kent.ca.
