City reopening three libraries for holds pick-up

By | May 26, 2020

WINNIPEG — The city announced on Tuesday the first phase of reopening libraries in Winnipeg.

Starting on June 8, three libraries will be opened for people to pick up items they have placed a hold on.

The three libraries are the Millennium Library at 251 Donald St., Henderson Library at 1050 Henderson Hwy., and Pembina Trail Library at 2724 Pembina Hwy.

Millennium will be open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Henderson and Pembina Trail will be open Monday to Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and on Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

People will still not be able to return items and won’t be able to browse the libraries.

The city said the three libraries were chosen because they are the busiest, most accessible branches.

If people want to place a hold on items, they can do so using the library’s online catalogue or mobile app.

Only one person per family will be allowed to pick-up items placed on hold, but visitors can pick up family member’s holds if they bring their library card.

The city said Phase Two of reopening libraries could happen in July, and would include expanded services like checkout, returns, and additional branches.

More information can be found on the city’s website.

This is a developing story. More to come.
