To ensure the health of the public, specifically that of children and senior citizens, the Township of Russell Public Library will be closed until further notice. This applies to both branches in Russell and in Embrun. Patrons can continue to return any library materials in the return bins.
The Library will waive any late fees during this time. All programs and events for EMBRUN AND RUSSELL will be cancelled until further notice. Weekly activities such as Story Time will be pushed back and any paid events will be reimbursed or rescheduled.
We encourage our patrons to take advantage of our electronic resources for eBooks, eMagazines and eAudiobooks. To view and access these resources, click the “eResources” tab under “Find an Item”.
Questions? Please email the Library at email@example.com and we will reply as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

RELOCATION OF THE EMBRUN BRANCH LIBRARY
The relocation of the Embrun Branch Library remains a priority to the new Public Library Board.
The Municipal Council still have to take a final decision “regarding the relocation of the Embrun Branch, a decision that best ensures a prompt move of the Branch to a safer location within our community“.
