Reading has become a way for many of us to get through COVID-19 isolation. The Kapuskasing Public Library has an innovative way to serve to serve the book worms through a curbside pick-up program. CEO Julie Latimer says you can call the library with author or book type suggestions, and the staff will do the rest.

“We will find those books that you are looking for and place them on your library card,” she said. “We arrange a time with our patrons to come by and get the books. Once you stop by the library we will open the door and give you the books that you have requested.”

It’s also okay to still return library books that you might have. Latimer says they are taking any returned books at library and putting them into isolation.

“They go into quarantine for 72 hours because library standards tell us that the books would be safe after that if there was anything on them,” she said. “We put them back on the shelf and then someone else can borrow them.”
