About Us

The BDU Library is a recreational library carrying non-fiction and fiction books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs for both adults and children. We offer WiFi as well as a computer with internet access. The daily operations of the library are provided by volunteers from the community with staff focused on cataloging and other technical aspects of the library’s operation.

The door the Whiteside Taylor Centre is now unlocked! You no longer have to ring the doorbell or sign-in to enter the library.

Please note: Book returns are once again being accepted at the circulation desk during library opening hours.

Limited Reopening and Safety Measures

The library is accessible to the public again in a limited capacity. Our hours of operation will be reduced until further notice and we will be open Monday to Friday from 2:30 to 5:00, and Sunday afternoons from 1:30 to 4:00. For safety reasons, the doors to the Whiteside Taylor Centre will remain locked, but you will be able to enter the building during opening hours by ringing the library's door bell.

With a focus on reducing contact and keeping our community safe, here are the safety measures that you’ll see at our library:

  • All library users aged 10 and over will be required to wear face masks when using the library.
  • Hand sanitizer will be made available to visitors at the library’s entrance.
  • Plexiglas screens have been installed at the circulation desk to reduce risks when borrowing books.
  • To respect physical distancing, our aisles will be limited to one person at a time when browsing through the collection.
  • Library users are invited to limit their visit to 30 minutes at a time.

We understand that some patrons are still concerned about the use of public spaces, so our No Contact Loan service will be available to users Monday to Friday from 2:30 to 4:30 by appointment only. Please contact us if you have any questions about our re-opening and safety measures.
