GPPL Stage 2 Update (June 12, 2020)

The Grande Prairie Public Library has been introducing innovative ways of serving the community since our physical location closed on March 13. Any new service offered has been heavily dependent on maintaining the safety of our patrons and staff. This will be our priority going forward.

As a part of Stage 2 of the Province’s Relaunch Strategy, we have been planning for a future re-opening. We must consider provincial guidelines and risk assessment including hygiene, restricting public spaces, and maintaining distancing. As such, we have not yet announced a date that GPPL will re-open.

In the coming weeks, we will announce when we will be able to welcome you back and what this version of GPPL will look like. Until then, continue to use our existing services such as Curbside Pickup, Curbside Printing, GPPL Virtually Anywhere programs and digital content. We hope to see you soon.

GPPL staff are available online (gppl.ca) through social media and chat and by phone from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm from Monday to Friday.  If you have questions, please call GPPL at 780-532-3580.

GPPL's exterior Book Return is now open!  For oversize items such as the Library of Things, please park in a spot designated for Curbside Pickup and call the number on the sign for staff to collect your item.
