As of Monday January 18, 2021, in connection with recent government announcements, the Laurent-Sauvage library will offer students aged 12 and over specially fitted out work rooms on the ground floor of the building. These temporary spaces will offer a Wi-Fi connection and the possibility of using a computer station.
In order to provide a safe environment for users in the context of a pandemic, spaces will be limited, and a maximum use of 3 hours per day, per person, will be authorized. To access the room, students must reserve their place in advance and present their student card as well as their citizen card on arrival. The City of Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac asks its population to use this common space only if they have no other possibility, in order to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Note that these spaces do not allow access to the shelves of the library or to a printer.
Students can take advantage of this on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Ready to go, Mystery bag and news
All citizens can continue to use the online reservation service with the Ready to Go offer. So, the library team gathers and packages the titles selected by the users, and makes an appointment with them to pick up the documents.
Two options are available for residents that cannot find the books they want:
1- The library can prepare a Mystery Bag for them adapted to their age and tastes, filled with documents to discover. When booking, residents should not hesitate to let the staff know their literary preferences by mentioning them in the “Notes of booking” space.
2 – If a resident is a fan of new things, and need to see the books before reading, it’s possible and easy online! Finding what’s new in the catalog is as easy as finding them on the shelves. One can have access to the cover page and description after entering the search criteria.
