Alberta SPCA AnimalTales Book Lending Program - COVID-19 Policy

The AnimalTales program is available for teachers to request for the 2020-21 school year and new measures have been implemented to ensure the safety of you and your students in response to COVID-19.

The time between lending periods will be increased; once the AnimalTales packages are returned from a teacher, they will be quarantined for at least one week. This exceeds the minimum time period recommended by the Canadian Urban Library Council and the Government of Alberta. Plastic surfaces (the teacher’s guide and book covers) will be sanitized. Group activity cards will be removed from the package and a version of these activities can be found online here.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
