We hope you are all continuing to stay safe and well.

No doubt you will have read recently that premier Ford announced, effective Friday 19th June, that Halton region is permitted to enter stage two of the provincial government’s plans for re-opening the province of Ontario. As such, the premier’s announcement included the following:

“All libraries can re-open with limited on-site services, such as computer access and contactless book pickup and drop-off. Patrons are not permitted to handle books or materials on shelves.”

However, in order to protect the well-being of the staff currently working at Main and to eliminate, as far as possible, any unnecessary contact between patrons and staff, we have decided that we will not be entering stage two at this time. While this news may be disappointing it does not prevent you from accessing all of our physical collections as we will be continuing to provide service through Curbside Collection, in addition to all of our online/ virtual services.

Furthermore, effective June 24th, we will be enhancing the services provided through Curbside Collection by offering:

1.    On demand printing services

2.    On demand 3D printing services

3.    Take and Make programmes

We firmly believe that this is the right decision for MPL’s staff and patrons, at this time and look forward to providing you, our patrons, with continued excellence in public library service provision.

We are excited to now be offering Curbside Collection! You are now able to place holds on items and book your time slot for pick up. Click here for more information.

Our book drop at Main Library is now open seven days a week.

Please note that only the book drop at Main Library will be open. The book drops at Sherwood branch and Beaty branch remain closed at this time.

Please note: MPL items left outside of any MPL branch will be deemed “lost items” and will be charged a replacement fee equal to the cover price plus a $5 processing fee.

Thank you for taking good care of your borrowed items. Please return them as soon as you possibly can.

All Milton Public Library (MPL) branches remain closed until further notice. Online access to the library's e-resources remains accessible. If you do not yet have a Milton Public Library card, please click here to sign up for an e-card and get instant access to all of MPL's electronic resources and e-books.
