Library Hours of Operation

The library is open Monday - Friday from 10 - 4pm. Please note that the library is NOT open after hours during support groups, events or meetings.

The library is closed on public holidays and between Christmas and New Years Day. It is advisable to ring before visiting to check for any alterations to normal hours.

If members are unable to get to Abbotsford, they can still borrow books from the library by arranging with EDV to have your choice of books posted out to you, if available at the time of your request.

Items borrowed can be returned out of hours via the slot in the front door of the office. Alternatively, if people are unable to bring them back, they can be posted to us to ensure they are returned on time.
