Mississauga Library will offer returns at all locations except Mississauga Valley Library starting on June 17 and curbside pickup for holds as of June 23 at select locations across the city. This is part of the library’s phased approach to resuming services following the Government of Ontario’s announcement on May 14 allowing public libraries to offer curbside pickup.
“As we continue to take a measured approach to reopen City facilities, we are proceeding with returns and curbside pickup services for our library customers,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “Based on the best advice of Peel Region’s Medical Officer of Health, we are moving ahead to provide these services in a way that protects the health and safety of residents and our employees. We are slowly returning to business as usual to provide residents with the services they need.”
Starting June 23, curbside pickup will be available at the Burnhamthorpe, Central, Lorne Park, Malton and Meadowvale libraries. Additional locations will be phased in when it is considered safe to do so.
Curbside pickup will be scheduled by appointment in keeping with physical distancing protocols.

Drop-off boxes at all locations except Mississauga Valley Library will open to accept returns starting June 17.
“Customers will be able to pick up their holds at the curb at selected libraries and drop off returns at all locations, with the exception of Mississauga Valley Library,” said Jennifer Stirling, Acting Director, Mississauga Library. “We are taking all the necessary steps to protect public health and safety. These include implementing stricter cleaning and sanitization procedures and observing physical distancing protocols. We also continue to encourage customers to explore our extensive range of virtual resources as we prepare to resume additional services in the future.”
Library due dates and fines continue to be suspended until further notice.
Customers can continue to use their library card or virtual card to explore our vast collection of ebooks, audiobooks and other online virtual resources.
