All that’s missing are some patio lanterns – Innisfil Lakeshore library branch opens up patio for patrons

Free WiFi, printing, and faxing services offered to patrons at all three locations

The Town of Innisfil’s library is taking a sun-soaked approach to serving its patrons.

The Innisfil IdeaLAB and Library is making iPads and WiFi available, free of charge to the public, on the patio of its Lakeshore Branch. Patrons will also be able to access WiFi from the Cookstown and Stroud branches. Otherwise, all three locations remain closed to the public.

The Lakeshore branch got its patio following renovations in 2015

Printing and faxing services are also being offered at all three locations, but the library asks you to visit its website or call ahead for details. These services are being offered as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic propelling more and more into the digital world. The library is increasing access to aid those who might not otherwise have the technology at home.

“We always appreciate patience and understanding from our customers, and it is particularly important at this time. Libraries are a high-touch type of business with many of shared spaces,” says Innisfil IdeaLAB & Library Acting CEO Susan Baues. “We hope that offering patio services helps improve access to reliable internet for our residents, while we continue to work on our plans to open our Branches safely and responsibly.”

The IdeaLAB and Library continues to offer curbside pick-up of physical materials and a host of online resources to choose from.
