Okanagan Regional Library branches closed over holidays

Online Services Always Available at Okanagan regional libraries

All branches of the Okanagan Regional Library will be closed during the holiday season beginning Friday, Dec. 23 until Monday, January 2, 2012. Branches will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 3 or thereafter based on their normal operating hours. Hours are posted on the ORL’s website at www.orl.bc.ca/branches. Though branches are closed, the ORL’s online resources will be available 24/7 from any computer.

During the closure all book bins will be locked for security reasons, and any items damaged or missing as a result of being left outside of branches will be the customer’s responsibility. However, items will not be due over the closure; loan periods are lengthened so that items are not due until branches re-open. Visit your local ORL branch before December 22 to stock up on holiday entertainment.

The ORL website, online catalogue and digital resources will be accessible at all times during the branch closure. From the ORL homepage you can click through to the catalogue, choosing either “standard” or the new “enhanced” catalogue with social networking features, and then login to your account. Also on the homepage are direct links to Library to Go for eBooks and Audiobooks, Tumblebooks online children’s books, and freegal downloadable music.
