Reopening, curbside pickup and returns

All Mississauga Library locations have reopened with limited service except for Frank McKechnie Library (currently under renovation).

Refunds for 2020 March Break program tickets will be available when the Library reopens. Please bring your program ticket and receipt (if available) into the library location where the ticket was purchased to claim your refund. Refunds cannot be processed without a ticket.

Appointments will no longer be required for holds at libraries that have reopened for library service. Curbside pickup will remain at Frank McKechnie Library until mid-October. Library due dates and fines have resumed.

The safety of our customers and employees is our top priority as we continue to offer services with advice from the Peel Medical Officer of Health.
