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.

Vegetable Gardening

Seeds, vegetables, and plant pots

You can grow vegetables here and there and anywhere! Join Master Gardener Judith Cox for an introduction to vegetable gardening.  

A Master Gardener since 2011, Judith Cox has always loved working with plants, and enjoys sharing that love with others.  Heritage vegetables are a favourite of hers along with roses and herbs and fairy gardens.  After working for 15 years as the gardener for Saunders Farm, she is now a garden consultant and a volunteer at Master Gardener advice clinics at local farmer’s markets. As of 2020, she is president of the Stittsville Goulbourn Horticultural Society and writes a weekly column called Veggie Bites.  She also sells her watercolour/pen and ink cards.
