To ensure the safety of our staff and our community and encourage adherence to public health guidelines, the Library building will be closed to the public until further notice.
Curbside service, e-resources, and take & make and virtual programs are available!
We are providing curbside pick-up (by appointment, select materials only, no special collections). Find out more here.
Manage your account and holds here on our website, via the free Simcoe County Libraries app, or call 705-526-4216 for assistance.
Our book drop is open 24/7. All materials will be subject to a week in quarantine before being checked in and placed back into circulation. If you still have materials you checked out before the closure, please return them as soon as possible, or fines will be charged.
Our electronic resources are available 24/7. Consider using our downloadable books, audiobooks, or magazines or learning something new with our online databases. Find all our updates and great shared resources on our Facebook or Twitter pages. Find our virtual programs on our Events Calendar and lots of free online activities here.
When it is safe to expand facility access and services we will also encourage patrons to:
- Explore our online resources, e-books, and e-audiobooks
- Renew their currently checked out items online or by phone
- Use our self-checkout options / scan their own library cards in-house
- Consider making any payments at / to MPL by debit / credit rather than cash
The Library continues to regularly monitor health authority communications. Should the situation change in Midland, further updates and responses will be made available here on the website to ensure we are keeping you informed.
