FVRL Operational Updates Regarding COVID-19


Due to the rapidly changing situation in the Fraser Valley around novel coronavirus (COVID-19), all FVRL locations are closed to the public until further notice.

Please note that during the closure customers will not be able to pick up holds or borrow physical items.

Book drops are closed to returns. Keep any materials your currently have checked out - please do not return items to the library at this time. Due dates will be automatically extended and late fines waived.

We made this decision to support the overall health and wellness of our communities and for the safety of our customers and staff. It was a difficult decision, as we care deeply about serving the public, but the responsible thing to do—and the best way to serve our customers right now—is to help minimize the spread of COVID-19. The best way we can serve our customers now is to help contain the virus, especially as our customers include many seniors and others at high risk.

We know the library is a critical resource for all ages, so we are taking steps to support our customers as much as possible during this temporary closure:

  • Due dates and holds will automatically extend to accommodate the closure period, and all late fines waived.
  • All libraries will be sanitized before they reopen.
  • Borrowing and streaming limits have been doubled for our most popular eBook, audiobook and streaming services, including OverDrive, RBdigital, Kanopy and Acorn TV.
  • All of our digital content, including eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, video streaming, eLearning, is available 24/7 online.

The health and safety of our customers and staff is the library’s top priority. Please continue to check this webpage and our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates. It is important that we all do our part to keep our communities healthy and safe.

Thank you,

Scott Hargrove

CEO, Fraser Valley Regional Library
