Library Services & the COVID-19 Lockdown

Our current crisis demands extraordinary measures, as of December 26th, 2020 the Province of Ontario moved into a second lockdown. Our top priority and concern is the health and safety of the residents of the Bonfield Township and our library staff.  The Bonfield Public Library will remain open for curbside services, until further notice. Please place holds on the items you want to borrow. If you require assistance in placing your holds or with photocopying, laminating, disc cleaning, give us a call 705-776-2396 or contact us through email:


Even when we’re physically closed, the library is always open online. You can continue to use all online resources, including eBooks and eAudiobooks. Our outside Wi-Fi access will remain open during this closure.


Warmest wishes from the Library Board & Staff and may your year ahead be filled with happiness, good health and great reads!


Keep safe and well.
