Did you know that the Champlain Library offers free library cards to anyone living in Champlain Township and East Hawkesbury? They are also free to every student who attends a school in Champlain Township regardless of their home address. This is a big incentive for kids to choose books from the library and read.

There is also an extra incentive to sign up for a library card during the month of September. Everyone who signs up for a new library card will have their name entered into a draw for a chance to win a family prize of books for different ages, a DVD and a bag of popcorn. Don’t have a library card yet? Go to the library’s website at bc-cl.ca to complete an online membership form.

The Champlain Library is currently offering curbside pickup, as it is closed to the public at this time. The service is available Monday to Friday from 1 pm to 5 pm. Patrons can reserve items on their card by viewing the online catalogue on the library’s website, by emailing their requests to [email protected] or by calling the library at 613-678-2216 if access to the internet is not possible.

So don’t delay, sign up today. Library staff members look forward to helping you get started to explore your gateway to knowledge. For more information on how to get a library card at the Champlain Library visit bc-cl.ca or call 613-678-2216.
