Effectively immediately, the Sioux Lookout Public Library will be closed on a temporary basis in response to the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in Canada. We believe this is the best course of action to keep our community safe—along with the communities we serve as the Hub of the North.

While we are expecting the closure to last approximately 3 weeks, please be prepared for a longer closure. Library materials can still be returned to the book drop.

Our digital services will remain active throughout the closure. Patrons can download audiobooks/eBooks to their devices with the Libby app, read magazines/graphic novels with the RBdigital app, and access several professional online resources listed on our website:

Please reach out to the CEO/Chief Librarian for any questions or concerns related to this closure ( / 1-807-737-3660 ext. 4401). You can contact library staff for assistance with your library account or other information needs ( / 1-807-737-3660).

We apologize in advance for this disruption of service.
