London Public Library has made the difficult decision to keep Library meeting rooms, including the Wolf Performance Hall, closed to the public until the new year. Current and recommended health and safety directives around indoor gatherings mean that it is difficult to effectively operate and manage London Public Library's community meeting and event spaces system-wide. If you have booked space this year, our Meetings and Events Services staff will be following up with you. We apologize for any inconvenience this decision may cause and look forward to a return to room bookings and rentals in the future.

We will share updates here as Stage 3 plans for London Public Library's services and locations are confirmed in coming weeks. At this time, all buildings remain closed to the public, except for Pick Up and Computer Services at Central Library.

July 6 Update: Starting July 14, Pick Up and Return Services will launch at Carson Branch Library with specific hours.

June 22 Update: Pick Up Service for items on hold and a Public Computer Service pilot has launched at Central Library.

All Library items should be returned using the chutes on Dundas Street. Returns are not accepted inside.

Find the list of locations offering outside Pick Up Service, hours of operation, and more details on our Pick Up Service page.

You can now return your items (other than large items) using the return chutes at any location except for Glanworth. Return chutes at Central Library are located outside Dundas Street and Citi Plaza entrances (inside return chutes are not available). Large items (Book Club bags, Board Games, Leisure Kits) should be brought to one of our locations during service hours and not returned using return chutes.
