The Haliburton County Public Library can proceed with a curbside pickup pilot.

The Haliburton County Library Board approved the pilot that will be offered at the Dysart location in the first phase, and will gradually be launched in other branches.

The phased in approach will ensure that procedures are in place at each location, to keep the staff and the community safe.

Library patrons with existing holds will be notified by email or phone for instructions regarding pickup. Drop boxes for returns are open at all branches.

The pilot begins on June 25 at the Dysart branch.
