The Swift Current Library is excited to announce Phase 2 of our planned public reopening on Monday, August 24th.
We are implementing safe reopening protocols, and as long as we continue to feel that our staff and the general public will be safe, we will reopen on that date. Our public opening hours, starting August 24, will be Monday to Friday: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., until further notice.
People over the age of two will be required to wear a mask while in the building. Everyone is encouraged to bring your own masks, but we’ll have disposable masks available as well.
We won’t resume in-person group library programs in the near future, but we’re excited to be working on a variety of online events for all ages.
Library Curbside Pickup Service
After we reopen, we’ll continue our Curbside Pickup Service, which has been very popular. To use our curbside service, you can order items at ChinookLibrary.ca, through the free SILS Mobile App, or by calling us at 306-778-2752. After you order, our staff let you know when your items are ready and you pick them up at the front door.
Outdoor Computer Lab Now Open
The Swift Current Library’s Outdoor Computer Lab is a great way for people to use our public computers while minimizing the risk of COVID spread by being socially distanced outdoors.
Call, email, or Facebook Message us to book a one-hour computer session, or you can take a chance and just stop by. Printing ($0.25 cash/page) and scanning (free) are available. Please bring a mask in case you need up close help from one of our staff members. One-on-One technology help is available now.
We are in the process of getting more laptops for our Outdoor Computer Lab, so we will be increasing our capacity soon. At the moment, computer sessions can only be booked for urgent needs; unfortunately, games and recreational social media will have to wait for now.
Free Wifi is available 24/7 from outside the R.C. Dahl Centre.
Outdoor Computer Lab users should note the R.C. Dahl Centre is not open to the public yet, so there will be no onsite public washrooms available until August 24 (the closest washroom is one block away in Elmwood Park).
We’ve also got a great selection of eBooks and eAudiobooks available for free through our free Libby App, or through ChinookLibrary.ca.
If you have any questions or would like help with anything, get in touch with us at 306- 778-2752, message us on Facebook: @SwiftCurrentPublicLibrary; or visit our website at SwiftCurrentLibrary.ca or ChinookLibrary.ca.
