The Fernie Heritage Library is inviting the public to enter their building as of Aug. 18.
Continuing to expand their available programming, the inter-library loan service has also been restored, allowing residents to access material from a variety of other libraries. Users of the service are able to order up to three items via the Fernie Heritage Library’s website or by calling in.
“We are really proud of being the community’s library,” said Emma Dressler, director of the Fernie Heritage Library.
“We haven’t closed our doors throughout this process and we are excited to start offering more services to the community and to have residents back in the building.”
The library is currently maintaining a capacity of 12 guests during operating hours, among other measures.
The library is currently open from Tuesday to Friday, with public access into the building running from 12 p.m. until 3 p.m., and curbside hours continuing from from 10 a.m. until noon, and 3 p.m. until 4 p.m.
Though the library seeks to extend their hours of operation in the fall, all virtual programming will continue throughout the rest of summer, as will their curbside program, pop up outdoor story times, and at home deliveries.
