We are open!
We are excited to welcome you back to the CM Libraries! We’ve missed you.
With everyone’s safety in mind, we have rearranged the Bruce Johnston Branch and removed some of the furniture and computers at both locations.
We know our patrons are the best and will understand our need to restrict the number of people in the building. While we would love to talk and catch up, patrons will be encouraged to keep the traffic flowing.
- 10 people per branch
- Once maximum occupancy has been reached, the “one in, one out” rule will apply
- We would prefer one person per family enter the library
- Parents are asked to stay with children, help them select material. Most toys and fun things have been put away

Contact-less Pick Up
Patrons are encouraged to browse/search the library catalogue and put items on hold. Patrons may also call the Branches or email and request items.
When staff pull material for patrons, they will be wearing masks and following proper hand washing/sanitizing protocols.
Patrons will be contacted when their material is ready for pick-up and instructions will be communicated at that time.
Please do not return material if you have tested positive for COVID-19, until you and everyone in your house have tested negative
Please do not return material if you have cold or flu like symptoms
Materials will be checked in and reshelved seven (7) days after they are removed from the drop box
