FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - FRIDAY MARCH 13TH, 2020
The Guelph Tool Library will be temporarily closed for a minimum period of three weeks, amid current COVID-19 concerns. As the GTL operates on Upper Grand District School Board property, the facility is subject to the same rules and regulations regarding closures as all publicly funded schools in Ontario.
Effective Friday, March 13th at 6 pm, the Guelph Tool Library will undergo a temporary closure that is expected to extend until Monday, April 6th. Items that are currently signed out can be returned on Friday, March 13th during regular operating hours. Late fees will not accrue during this temporary closure, but will be reinstated when the Guelph Tool Library reopens.
Outgoing loans can be processed on March 13th, and will not be subject to late fees until the Guelph Tool Library reopens upon approval from the Upper Grand District Schoolboard. GTL staff will continue to monitor the situation and will update their members as new information regarding the closure becomes available. All on-site programs at the Guelph Tool Library are currently postponed. Ticket holders for any upcoming workshops will be refunded or given the option to put their current ticket towards a future event. Our appearance at the eMerge Guelph Eco Market will be rescheduled.
A PREVIOUS VERSION OF THIS MESSAGE INDICATED THE GUELPH TOOL LIBRARY WOULD BE OPEN MARCH 15TH, THIS HAS SINCE BEEN REDACTED DUE TO THE FULL CLOSURE OF ALL UGDSB SPACES EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY.
