UPDATES:

In the interest of the health and safety of our community and our employees, the London Public Library Board has decided to close all London Public Library facilities starting Sunday, March 15 at 4pm. Library locations will remain closed until further notice.  Watch for details here on our website.

This is a very difficult decision to make as we truly understand the community impact of a closure of our facilities, particularly on those who rely on their Library for community space and access to the Internet. We will be monitoring the situation closely, in consultation with local health authorities and the City of London, and will make our facilities available to the public as soon as we are safely able to do so. 

In line with public health directives, the Library is now closed until further notice.  Once a re-opening date has been determined, we will post all details here on our website.

During the closure:

No fines will be charged and no cards will expire.

No items will be due until after the Library re-opens.

  • Please help by not returning any items until after we re-open.
  • All return chutes will be closed until further notice
  • Items on hold shelves will remain there until after the Library re-opens.
  • We will work through any individual account issues with you when we re-open. Please do not be concerned about fines, due dates or other issues.
  • We have temporarily paused the abilty to place holds on physical items (books, DVDs, etc.) during the closure.  You can still place holds on digital items (eBooks, etc.)

Use of our Digital Library as always is free with your Library card and includes access to eBooks, audiobooks, local, national and international newspapers, movies, music, magazines and online courses and learning for children and adults.

If your card expired earlier this year (Jan 1, 2020 to present), you will still be able to use our Library.

If you have fines on your card you will still be able to use our Digital Library.

All programs and events at all Library locations have been cancelled through May 18 at this time.

Updated Library information will be posted to: www.lpl.ca/coronavirus as it becomes available and to London Public Library’s social media accounts (@londonlibrary on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram).
