New rules for accessing Côte Saint-Luc facilities (updated June 24, 2021)

With restrictions easing across our region, rules are changing at Côte Saint-Luc facilities. The following explains the changes. 

Côte Saint-Luc Public Library 

Starting June 28, 2021, the no-contact pickup service is relocating from the outdoor area behind the children’s library to the library café area. This will allow greater access to the children’s library area for families. Also, we’re changing the way we notify patrons when to pick up their materials. For patrons who have given us their e-mail address, they will receive an e-mail message, which will include a link to schedule a date and time a to pick up the items. For patrons who have not given us their e-mail address, library staff will continue to call them by telephone. 

Aquatic and Community Centre 

Throughout the summer season, the ACC lobby will be busier than it has been over the past year. A plan is in place to ensure that guidelines are respected throughout all the facilities. We strive to ensure the safety of the public.
