After long weeks of having to prohibit access to its shelves, the Deux-Montagnes library is able to give free access to its shelves to subscribers as of Thursday, February 11, 2021.
In order to comply with current health measures, the capacity will be 40 people at a time and subscribers will not be able to stroll or read inside the library. Tables and computers will be available, but by reservation a maximum of 24 hours in advance.
Also, it should be noted that the opening hours have been revised in order to align with the current 8 p.m.: curfew, the library will close at 7 p.m. instead of 8 p.m., Monday to Friday.
The ready-to-go service remains in operation. Subscribers can still reserve documents via the library catalog or by phone (450 473-2796, option 5) during opening hours. They will receive a call when their documents are ready to be picked up at the counter.
RETURN OF DOCUMENTS
Subscribers must continue to use the exterior book chute (located to the right of the front door) to return borrowed documents. Due to the quarantine of documents upon their return for a minimum of 24 hours, there will be a delay between when the books are returned and when they are removed from the subscriber’s file.

This winter, the library is offering activities exclusively online or in the form of take-home kits. Registrations are underway!
