Holiday Hours for Branches



Jarvis Branch Closure


The Jarvis Branch is closed for renovations effective Friday, November 17th, 2017. Our scheduled reopening date is Monday, January 15th, 2018. Renovations include new carpeting and painting throughout, a fully-accessible service counter, an enlarged and redesigned local history and genealogy room, accessible public washrooms and a new study/small meeting room. We will also be relocating some collections to accommodate future community hub features, helping you to access Haldimand County digital services and print resources. This webpage as well as our telephone messaging system will be updated to confirm our reopening date.  

 Holds: During the closure, all items remaining in the Jarvis Branch will be boxed for storage and we will be unable to access them for you. Our online catalogue will prevent holds from being placed on Jarvis items during this period. If you already have holds on Jarvis items, don't fear. When these items are returned and become available for you, library staff will contact you and can make arrangements for pickup at another branch. 

 Returns: If you have recently borrowed items from the Jarvis Branch, a number of return options are available to you:  

 1. Keep until January 15th: Hang on to your items until we reopen. 

 2. Book Drop: Our overnight return bin will remain open during the closure period and will be regularly emptied by library staff. 

 3. Other branches: Return your items at another branch of the Haldimand system ... and explore their collections! 

Accessibility Notice: 

Dunnville Branch: The automatic door at our Chestnut Street entrance is currently out-of-order. The automatic door at our new, east entrance is functioning. If you require the use of automatic door features, please use our new entrance (by our parking lot) while we work on repairs to our Chestnut Street entrance.
