In light of the situation regarding COVID-19 in Manitoba, the BSJL staff and board members encourage everyone to stay home and to stay safe.

However, we also recognize that staying home might be made more pleasant with a good book to help pass the time.

That is why we will resume our curbside pickup services starting Monday, November 23rd. Staff will be available to answer your questions or take requests Monday to Friday from 3:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Pickup will be available from 4 pm to 6:30 pm. Call us (204-424-9533) or send us an email ( to request books.

If you are able, call us when you arrive on the premises and we will meet you outside. Returns will also be accepted.

We ask that you please not enter the building. We will be wearing a mask, please wear yours.

To limit the amount of interactions between staff and clients, you are encouraged to request the amount of books that will last you a while.

We love books and are happy to share the love of reading with you, but above all we want to help Manitobans stay healthy.
