Curbside Pickup for Hold Requests will continue
Even though many of our services have returned, we still want to accommodate the needs of all our patrons. For that reason, we will continue to offer curbside pickup for hold requests during service hours. Patrons can call, email, or place a hold in our catalogue. Once we have filled your order, we will call you to arrange a pickup time. When picking up your items, ring the "Book Bell" and we will bring them out to you.

The Radon Library lending program is provided free to library patrons through support from Health Canada, the BC Lung Association, Simon Fraser University and the Kootenay Library Federation. The Kits are available for four-week loans.
Radon gas comes from naturally occurring uranium in soils and rocks and some regions in Canada have more uranium than others. Radon levels in homes can be elevated but it is impossible to tell unless you test as the gas is odourless, tasteless and colourless.
You can place a hold on our website, call, or email us to add your name to the holds list. Unfortunately our system had a glitch, and holds made on the kit before March 2020 were not saved, so if you placed a hold previously, you will need to add it
Click here to find the radon kit in our catalogue. Click “place hold” be put on the waitlist for the radon lending kit. Please call the library if you have any questions.
