The Winnipeg Public Library is offering contactless pick-up at all of its branches.
How Does it Work?
- Visit the library’s website or download the Winnipeg Public Library app
- Type what you are looking for in the Search Catalogue
- Select the title, press hold, and choose location
Once your hold is available for pickup, you’ll receive a phone or email notification. Head over to your selected branch during operating hours but don’t come inside yet. Instead, call the branch from the safety of your vehicle or from a safe distance outside. The number will be posted on the door. If you don’t have a mobile phone, please call before leaving your house.
A library employee will then ask you for your name and library card number. They will check the items out for you and direct you to the holds pickup area.
One person is allowed in the pick-up area at a time. Your items will be clearly marked with your name. You may have to wait outside until the holds pickup area is clear. Please remember to wear a mask and physical distance at all times.
