A place for announcements, events, projects & opinions
Given the recent public health restrictions set out by the Government of Alberta and the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the Edmonton region, we have decided to close temporarily until further notice.
While the update to COVID-19 restrictions on November 24th did not require many changes to our current operation, we have made this voluntary decision in the interest of reducing the risk in our region.
This is a decision we did not take lightly. We know that many of you are spending a great amount of time at home and having access to the library has provided a helpful outlet. However, due to the size of our space, and the logistics of sharing, we felt we could not continue to provide service that would be safe enough for our members and volunteers during this time.
We will remain open this Saturday November 28, for both returns and rentals. If you’re doing a big project, now is the time to rent some tools and have them for a month! Please note only one person is allowed in the tool library at a time, and if we are helping someone inside at the time of your arrival, you must wait outside or in your car. Two librarians will be on site to guide you through this process.
We appreciate our community’s support and dedication in helping get through this difficult time. We can’t wait to beat this thing and be back to regular operations.
Things to keep in mind:
Give the gift that keeps giving this holiday season! For only $50, you get a one-year membership loaded with benefits and you'll be supporting a local Edmonton non-profit.
This year, we hope our little organization can help make things a little bit brighter for you and yours by providing affordable ways to get those projects done!
