News and Happenings
It is with great sadness that we have to inform our library users that the SOLS (Southern Ontario Library Service) interlibrary loan (ILL) delivery service will permanently cease to operate. We would need all ILL documents to be return to the Embrun or Russell Branch in the Dropbox before April 24th 2019. We know this is very sad and disappointing news but given the enormity of the cut to their operating budget, there is no alternative.
Thank your for your collaboration.
Please note that the Embrun Branch will be closed on Wednesday, May 1st from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a staff training session. Both branches will be closed on Friday, May 3rd from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for a retirement celebration.
Thank your 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“.
