COVID-19 Response

Dear Patrons,

In response to the increased health concerns surrounding COVID-19, the Jake Epp Library has made the very difficult decision to temporarily close its doors beginning March 17th. At this time, the duration of the closure is unknown. Provincial health authority guidelines will be followed. It is very challenging, if not impossible, to keep a public library fully sanitized under pandemic conditions, and it is also extremely difficult to ensure social distancing in a public space. During the weeks in which the library is closed, the entire building will be deeply cleaned and sanitized.

Library Services During the Closure:

The Jake Epp Library website has information on how to access electronic books through eLibraries Manitoba. Go to:

Due Dates:

The library will not be accepting any returned materials during the closure. All due dates will be adjusted as needed. Currently items are due back on June 30th.

Thank you for your support, patience, and understanding during this time and know that the health and safety of our community is our top priority.
