Libro welcomes Owners for visits without appointments. Many transactions can be completed through online banking or over the phone so we ask you to only visit a location if necessary. We remain focused on public health, please see below to learn what steps we are taking to ensure the safety of our Owners and Staff.
Special Measures to Protect Owners, and Staff and our Community
Protecting Our Staff
Our staff are committed to continuing to serve our Owners. And, Libro is committed to supporting the well-being of all staff. Some of the measures we are taking are:
- Staff may be wearing face shields or face coverings for our protection and yours.
- Plexiglass may be installed.
- A reduced number of wickets may be open.
- We are sanitizing our workstations throughout the day.
We have the utmost respect for the essential frontline staff who keep Canada working, and that includes our Libro colleagues providing Owner service during the COVID-19 pandemic. We expect everyone to share that respect, to act with kindness, and to follow the requirements set out by the health authorities.
Protecting Our Community
Libro views community support as core to our business and that will remain consistent throughout the coming months. We are supporting the non-profit sector through thought leadership and collaboration and through monetary contributions. Our sponsorship and granting programs will continue to offer support to local organizations.
We know non-profits are expected to feel increasing strain from job losses and reduced access to services by the most vulnerable. We are connecting with local community leaders to ensure we understand the most pressing needs in southwestern Ontario and will adjust as needed. See this page for more information.
