Special Services

Along with all our collections, activities and events, the library offers some ongoing special services.

Art Gallery
The Moncton Public Library hosts art exhibits throughout the year in our gallery space on the main floor. There is a new artist’s work on display each month. We’re always on the look for exhibitors! Are you an artist or collector looking to have an exhibit in our gallery? Please print and complete the Exhibit Request Form and return it to the library.

Seed Library
The Seed Lending Library is a collection of seeds from which patrons can borrow. Seeds are planted, grown and then harvested to make a return of seeds at the end of the growing cycle. More information on the Seed Library is available here.

Object Lending Collection
An object library or a tool library is a collection of household items, tools, musical instruments, sports equipment, etc. that are available for people to take home and use. Here is the list of objects that can be borrowed from the Moncton collection. Contact the library directly for more information about each object.

Exam proctoring
We offer exam proctoring subject to the availability of authorized staff and resources. There is no fee for proctoring services; however, students assume responsibility for all costs and requirements associated with test-taking, including materials such as paper and pencils, and stamps for mailing exams. Minimum advance notice of one week is required. Please contact the library directly to request proctoring services.

The library provides accessible services for people with disabilities. Services include alternative formats such as audiobooks and large print, the Talking Books Program, the Books By Mail program as well as an adaptive computer workstation with specialized hardware and software.
