On June 8, the Premier of Ontario announced that some public libraries are permitted to partially re-open under stage two of the second phase of the government’s framework for reopening the province. What libraries are allowed to offer is restricted to only a few services: they may reopen 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. Libraries should operate in adherence with public health guidelines on physical distancing, capacity and hygiene procedures (e.g., disinfecting returns and high-touch areas like computers).
