Curbside Pickup

Pembroke Public Library building remains closed to the public. For patrons who wish to borrow from our in-house collection we are offering contact-free curbside pickup.

Please note the following:

No materials are due before August 6, and no memberships will expire until August 6. No fines will accrue during the time of closure, but preexisting fines (for items that were overdue prior to the closure) will be carried over. This includes interlibrary loan books. As usual, we encourage patrons to return items before the due date.

Books and other items MUST be returned in the drop boxes. For patron convenience, the drop boxes are now open 24/7. Absolutely no door drop offs or items left outside will be accepted.

Public access to the Library building is prohibited at this time.

We encourage patrons to access library services virtually from our Access from Home page and explore magazines, movies, ebooks, eaudiobooks, craft projects and more.

We are offering temporary library memberships for access to our digital libraries only. In-house materials will not be available for temporary membership holders.

Contact Free Curbside Pickup:

All library materials are quarantined and cleaned before they are singed out or returned to the shelves. For this reason we will  not be accepting any returns from patrons at pickup. Returned items must be deposited in the drop boxes.

Curbside pickup is available Monday-Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Items available include: books for all ages, audio books, DVD and Blu-ray movies/series, and magazines. No museum passes will be available for loan at this time.

Patrons may reserve items by:

            • singing into their account through our library catalogue
            • emailing our staff at, or
            • calling our staff at 613-732-8844

Once your requests have been received and prepared, staff will contact patrons by phone or email to arrange a pickup date/time.

Delivery options are available if required, please contact staff to discuss details, some restrictions apply.
