Covid-19 Update with MPL logo

Update from our Chief Librarian:

MPL will continue to follow the provincial guidelines impacting public libraries, relative to the Omicron COVID-19 variant, in order to ensure the safety of our staff and patrons. 

While for now, we continue to provide in-branch services at all three MPL locations, our programmes will continue to be offered virtually.

Mandatory Vaccinations for MPL Employees and Volunteers:

Milton Public Library (MPL) has adopted a mandatory vaccine policy for all employees and volunteers, which came into effect on 15th September 2021.

All MPL employees and volunteers, including members of the MPL Board, are required to have received a full series of any federally approved COVID-19 vaccine, or combination, thereof, and to provide the corresponding documentation issued by the Ontario Ministry of Health, or equivalent, by 30th October 2021.

The health and safety of employees, volunteers and patrons of MPL is the number one priority. This policy demonstrates a commitment to taking every reasonable precaution in the circumstances for the protection of the health and safety of everyone, from COVID-19.

In upholding this policy, MPL will comply with all human rights requirements and accommodate employees as necessary.

Stay safe – and if you haven’t already, please get vaccinated!

Online Resources & Programming:

All of MPL’s programmes will continue online and we encourage you to continue to access MPL’s plethora of online resources.

Online access to the library's e-resources remains accessible. If you do not yet have a Milton Public Library card, please click here to sign up for an e-card and get instant access to all of MPL's electronic resources and e-books.

Print Your Vaccination Certificate with QR Code at the Library:

You can now print your vaccination certificate at the library! While our library staff can assist during this process, it’s recommended that you access and print the enhanced vaccination certificate by yourself to protect your privacy and personal information. If assistance is needed, our staff will take recommended steps to protect your personal information, such as not keeping a visitor log and not retaining any personal health information.

Please see the instructions, which explains how to access and print your proof of vaccination here.
