CKPL Continues Curbside Service

DATE:  February 16, 2021

The provincial lockdown order for Chatham-Kent ends today; our community enters into the Provincial COVID response framework at ‘Red Control’. CEO/Chief Librarian, Tania Sharpe, in consultation with General Manager, Dr. April Rietdyk and Library Managers, has made the decision that Chatham-Kent Public Library will continue offering Curbside Service only at this time.

Staff and patron safety remains the priority for Chatham-Kent Public Library, and so, CKPL will continue to provide Curbside Service while Chatham-Kent K is in the ‘Red Control’ zone. This decision will be re-evaluated every 2 weeks, when there are new announcements regarding where Chatham-Kent is on the provincial COVID response framework.

CK residents have been making good use of Curbside Service, borrowing 41,129 items from 11 branches in the month of January. Library staff can connect patrons with books, movies and other materials that meeting their needs for entertainment or education, and are happy to chat with patrons about what they are looking for!

Also, ‘Ask CKPL’ is available to answer questions by phone (519.354.2940), text (519.401.7174), email at or Facebook chat: @CKPLibrary.
