SEPTEMBER 30 UPDATE

A new provincial public health order was released late this afternoon that exempts libraries from requiring proof of vaccination. 

That means RPL customers can enter the library without proof of vaccinations or a negative test. 

RPL remains committed to supporting our whole community in accessing the services they need from the library. 

Mandatory masking remains in place as does continued attention to cleaning/sanitizing.

All visitors aged 3 and over are required to wear a mask in the library. We have masks, including kids’ masks, available for you.  

Please do not enter the library if you are sick. 

We ask that you not bring food into the library. Drinks are allowed. Wear your mask between sips. 

Curbside pickup is available – call 306-777-6000 for more information.

RPL follows the COVID-19 health measures set by the Government of Saskatchewan. Keep an eye on this page for status updates.
