781

FROM THE COUNTY OF LAMBTON VIA NEWS RELEASE

Lambton County Library is temporarily closing Alvinston Library and Corunna Library for a period of two to three weeks in order to complete scheduled renovations. Corunna Library will be closed effective Monday, January 25, 2021 and Alvinston Library will be closed effective Monday, February 1, 2021. All services, including curbside pickup, will be suspended at both libraries during this time.
Last year, both libraries’ footprints were adjusted to support the integration of social services meeting spaces at Lambton County Library. This included creating private meeting space that will be available to allow greater access for Ontario Works clients living in rural areas of Lambton County and help alleviate some challenges associated with obtaining transportation to Sarnia.
Now that the physical footprints of both libraries have been adjusted, the period of closure will allow for the installation of new shelving to make improvements to traffic flow and workflow, and better layout both libraries’ collections.
Both libraries are expected to re-open their services on Tuesday, February 16, 2021. Drop boxes will remain open at both locations and patrons are encouraged to access contactless curbside pickup service at other nearby locations including Sarnia, Sombra, Petrolia, Watford, Oil Springs and Florence.
