Due to COVID-19, all locations of the Cape Breton Regional Library will be closed until further notice. The decision to reopen will be made in consultation with Nova Scotia Public Health authorities. You can still access online library services. All book drops are closed.
Questions can be directed to 902-565-6359 (Monday-Friday, 10am-3pm) or by emailing email@example.com.
In the interest of the health and safety of our community and our employees, the Cape Breton Regional Library Board has decided to close all library locations.
This is a difficult decision to make as we truly understand the community impact of a closure of our facilities, particularly on those who rely on their Library for community space and access to the Internet. We will be monitoring the situation closely, in consultation with local health authorities and CBRM and Victoria County, and will make facilities available to the public as soon as we are safely able to do so.
During the closure:
- No late fees will be charged
- All book drops will be closed
- NO Book Donations will be accepted at this time
- Items on hold will remain there until after we re-open
- We will work through any individual account issues with you when we re-open. Please do not be concerned about fines, due dates or other issues.
