All P.E.I. public libraries are closed until further notice. Due dates will be adjusted, and no fines will accumulate during the closure.  

Please do not return borrowed library materials until the libraries re-open.  

Follow the P.E.I. Public Library Service Facebook page for additional information or go to the P.E.I. government page at princeedwardisland.ca for closure information of provincial services and reliable COVID-19 information. 

Online library services are available at library.pe.ca. Included in these services are downloadable e-books and audiobooks. These are available from home with a library card through Overdrive (peipls.overdrive.com) or you can download the Libby app to a tablet or phone. 

The Overdrive collection offers something for everyone – from cookbooks to memoirs to romance to John Grisham. There are also books for teens and books for children.

Speaking of children, the library has additional electronic resources for kids that are available from the comfort of your own home.  Tumblebooks is a resource that allows kids to read along or have a story read to them. It also has a collection of other resources, including e-books, graphic novels, puzzles and games and National Geographic videos.  

Stay safe and we’ll see you as soon as we can.
