Contactless Holds Pickup – Coming Soon to OPL

On May 14th, the Ontario Government announced additional businesses and services will be permitted to open or expand their services in the coming days.  The reopening of libraries for pickup during “Stage 1” was included in this announcement.

The Oakville Public Library (OPL) is currently working on a comprehensive reopening and recovery plan to ensure that staff and customers can safely access the library. At this time, OPL is not ready to offer contactless holds pickup, but will be in the near future.

Further details will be announced via the OPL website and its social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram), as they become available.

At this time, please note that all branches, OPL Express locations and book drops remain closed until further notice. Please do not return any borrowed library materials. All due dates have been extended.
