COVID-19: Library Updates

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Brantford Public Library is now closed.

The Library will be closed until at least Monday, April 13. However, that date may change depending on developments. 

The decision to close is based on the province's Emergency Declaration and was made with support of the Brantford Public Library Board and in consultation with the City of Brantford.

During the closure, the Library:

  • Will extend loan periods
  • Will waive all fines
  • Will suspend all holds
  • Will automatically renew library memberships scheduled to expire during the closure
  • Cancel all programs, events and community appearances
  • Lock all book drops (please do not attempt to return any materials during the closure)
  • Requests customers to check the Library's website and the Facebook Page for updates. 

Library staff will monitor phone messages and online queries. However, due to volume, we may not be able to respond to each question.
