Self-serve Kiosk now at Gretzky Sports Centre

As Brantford continues to grow, we are excited to offer a new service point in our community.

A self-serve Library Kiosk is now available to use at the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre.

The Library Kiosk will be stocked with 150 items and can be used in three easy steps:

  1. Scan your Library card
  2. Open the door and remove the books you would like to borrow
  3. Close the door

And - That’s it!

The items are checked out automatically once they are removed from the kiosk and you will receive a printed receipt showing the date the items need to be returned. You're able to put any books back into the kiosk, if you decide you don't want to borrow them.

People can borrow as many items as they like from the kiosk, which will be replenished regularly.

By having the kiosk at the Wayne Gretzky Centre, the Library is extending service further into the north end of Brantford. The Gretzky Centre is also open seven days a week and has longer hours than existing Library branches.
