We Pick It!

Hate choices? GPPL will make them for you! If you're not sure what you want to read or watch, fill out a few details in our forms (below) and we'll get back to you with 5 suggestions in 1 to 2 business days

While we are temporarily closed as a response to COVID-19, we will arrange Curbside Pickup for your physical items. Keep in mind, we're only doing 10 items at a time. If you want more information on our current status, please check our COVID-19 Info Page.

Read It:

Get reading recommendations for the books currently on our shelves, including options for different formats (Large Print, Audiobook, etc), and age categories. We will also recommend books from our digital resources like Libby and cloudLibrary for those of you at home trying to find something to read. Fill out the form and tell us what you want!

Watch It:

Get watching recommendations for the movies and television shows currently on our shelves, including options for different formats (DVD, BluRay) and age categories. We're also opening our watching recommendations up to Netflix and other streaming services, for those of you at home with nothing to watch. Fill out the form and tell us what you want!

How it works:

GPPL will contact you within 1-2 business days with our suggestions based on your form responses. 

In person, we usually hold an entire back and forth conversation with you to find out your likes and dislikes so we can match you with the perfect book. This is a bit more difficult over email, but we'll do our best!

If you're requesting physical items (and not from our digital collection), once you receive your suggestions, you'll need to send us a confirmation email to let us know you if want them. This is the step where you can tell us if you've read something before (and don't want it again) or if we're on the wrong track. We won't put the titles aside for you and arrange Curbside Pickup for them until after we've received confirmation that you're happy with the list.

GPPL isn't accepting returns on items during the COVID-19 closure. There are no late fees on items at this time, so please keep them for now.

If you need to contact GPPL during our closure, we're available Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm by emailing info@gppl.ca or calling (780) 532-3580. You can also chat with us over Facebook.
