CCML FAQs

The CCM Library is open Monday-Friday, 1-6pm, with the following services available in person, virtually or both.

We will continue to update these FAQs and applicable web pages and adapt according to needs and feedback. Our hours and services are also subject to change due to changing safety measures, public health guidance and directives. As always, we will update the CCM community on significant changes via email, the CCM Library web site and LiBlog posts.
