Step 1: Contactless services inside most open branches


There are contactless services inside most of our 31 open branches, with strict capacity limits in place, as of June 14, 2021, except at Metcalfe Village, Orléans and Rosemount. This means:

  • Pick up holds and check them out at self-checkout stations.
  • Return borrowed items to book drops anytime.
  • Access to PCs, Chromebooks, and printing, where these are available.
  • No other services: no browsing, no washroom access.
  • Mask-wearing remains mandatory inside, and outside in line.

For details, go to Current Branch Services.

Tech Café : Reduce The Anxiety of Managing Your Passwords Using # and Password Phrasing

Logo for the Tech Café

#PasswordPhrasing is all about making it easier to manage passwords.  Lawrence Patterson (ISSO, ITIL & two decades supporting people’s personal / professional technology needs) will review the changing landscape of keeping our lives secure by evangelizing our individualism, showing how typing the same set of characters can bring an inner smile as well as sharing techniques that will focus less on the complexity and more on the way we each think.

Acknowledging that password advice has varied significantly in the last few years and is expected to change further in the coming months / years, Lawrence will explore the challenges and discuss why #PasswordPhrasing is important to all of us, all the while making the connection between passwords and footwear!
