Brooks Public Library Closure - What does it mean?

We’re now only seven days away from our upcoming closure! As you might already know, the Brooks Public Library will be closed from Monday September 24 to Monday October 8, 2012 for renovations. We will reopen on Tuesday October 9, 2012. Over the next few days, we’ll be giving you information about how you can still access the library during our closure, and an insider peek into the changes that are occurring behind the scenes.

With this closure, it’s important to note that you will be unable to pick up holds, pay fines, or renew memberships at our library. You can return your library materials to the library while we’re closed through our outside drop box, at any Shortgrass member library, or at the Medicine Hat College: Brooks Campus library. Our online catalogue will still be available for you to browse online, and to place holds. If you decide to place a hold, you items will be shipped to the Medicine Hat College: Brooks Campus library, where you can pick them up within seven days of your hold notification call or email.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused during this period and we kindly ask for your understanding and co-operation. We will be posting regular updates about the upgrade on our website ( or on any of our social media pages including Facebook and Twitter. If you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to speak to one of the Library Assistants at the Circulation Desk, or you can reach us by phone at 403-362-2947.
