ORILLIA PUBLIC LIBRARY
The Ramara Public Library is offering new services to help those who want to obtain services during the closure of the library due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Are you finding now that you wish you had a library card? Ramara Public Library is now offering online memberships to people who live in Ramara, seasonal residents, students and teachers of Ramara schools.
Patrons will be asked to email a photo of their driver's licence or piece of photo ID and mail with Ramara address to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will also be required to complete an online membership form available from the homepage of our website. Once your photos and email form are received, your application will be approved and an email confirmation will be sent to you with your new library card number and PIN.
Why would you want access to the library when it is closed? The library has a wealth of online resources – from learning new languages and computer skills, to learning new hobbies.
There are also gardening, health, business, legal and many other resources available for all walks of life – children, youth, adults and seniors. In addition, we offer downloadable eBooks and audiobooks using our Libby app, as well as eMagazine using our Flipster app which can both be found in your App Store on a phone, tablet or other device.
In an effort to encourage online participation for all ages, we are celebrating April - National Poetry month! This will be live on our website, social media and future eNewsletter. Ramara residents/students are welcome to email an original piece of poetry which will be entered into the contest. Poems will also be posted online.
A winner in each category (children (0-12), teens (13-18) and adults (19+)) will be selected on May 8th and a prize will be awarded once the library re-opens for business.
Looking for other things to keep you busy? We encourage you to stay connected to the library for current, reliable information regarding the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Get connected by signing up for our weekly eNewletters by visiting the bottom of our homepage and like us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
We may be physically closed, but rest assured that we are working hard behind the scenes to provide our community with trusted information and resources!
