Browse and Go at CKPL Relaunches July 6

As the Province moves into Stage 2, Chatham-Kent Public Library is thrilled to offer open hours with limited capacity at all 11 library branches starting Tuesday, July 6. For the detailed hours of Library Service, please contact your local branch or visit CKPL online at

In Stage 2, CKPL will continue to offer the option for Curbside Service but will offer “Browse and Go” hours, picking up holds, selecting library materials, access to computers, printers and photocopiers. Library staff can offer only very limited technology help at this stage.

Computer workstations will be available at all branches for 45 minutes appointments, and wifi stations will also be bookable.

Covid precautions remain in place in all library branches:

  1. Please wear your mask. Staff will be wearing masks and shields as per Public Health measures.
  2. Hand sanitizer will be available upon entry and work surfaces will be regularly disinfected.
  3. Patrons and staff must maintain physical distancing of 2 metres at all times.

Summer Reading programming, for all ages, will be offered virtually and will begin the end of June. Contact your local CKPL branch for more details.
