Exposure Control Plan – COVID-19

Richmond Public Library is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for staff and the public. A combination of measures will be utilized to minimize staff exposure to COVID-19. Our work practices and procedures will protect both our staff and the public who enter our facilities. We will follow direction and controls as specified by the Provincial Health Officer, BC Centre for Disease Control and the local Health Authority’s Medical Health Officer.

The library is committed to safety through:

  • Monitoring of branch capacity limits
  • Ensuring physical distancing reminders are in place
  • Encouraging mask usage
  • Providing hand sanitizer at all entrances
  • Maintaining clean library spaces with a focus on high touch areas

The library is no longer quarantining materials

We are following the direction of infectious disease experts in our province. The BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) has issued guidelines for libraries which states that the risk of transmission of COVID-19 on library materials is very low and that evidence does not require libraries to quarantine or disinfect items.

This modification allows us to check-in your returns and holds quickly, providing you with the books you want.
If you have concerns about borrowing materials, you can still quarantine your checked out items at home prior to enjoying them.

Customers may now visit any Richmond Public Library branch Monday to Friday, from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
Customers may also visit the Brighouse, Ironwood and Steveston branches on Saturdays from 10:00am to 4:00pm.
Quick drop-in service includes picking up holds, checking out books and receiving help from library staff. Capacity limits are in effect and the line-up to enter the library will close by 3:45pm if capacity limits are reached. To view available services, visit https://www.yourlibrary.ca/limited-service/.

Brighouse and Steveston book returns are open Monday to Saturday from 9:00am to 4:00pm daily.
Ironwood book returns are open from Monday at 9:00am until Saturday at 4:00pm and Cambie book returns are open Monday at 9:00am until Friday at 4:00pm.
We want to assure you that no late fines will be charged regardless of due date.
All internal book returns continue to be unavailable until we can safely restore this service.

Public computer labs are available at all branches for those who have limited or no access to a computer, the internet, and/or printing. This service is drop-in, first come, first served. Customers may use up to two 45 minute sessions per day. Visit our Public Computers page for dates, times and capacity.
