Recently there have been a number of incidents of vandalism to the external book return at the Cumberland branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library.
Due to this vandalism, the book drop was locked March 8. The vandalism has been reported to the local police.
“In order to prevent further damage to library materials we made the decision to lock the book return until further notice,” says Fiona Anderson, director of library services. “Customers will have to return their library materials when the branch is open. We are sorry for the inconvenience this will cause to our customers.”
The Cumberland Branch is open:
• Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 to noon and 1 to 5;
• Thursdays from 10 to noon and 1 to 6;
• Saturdays from 1 to 5 p,m.
