Let's Stay Connected

News is still breaking about library re-opening plans across the country.

Curbside Pick Up seems to be the front-runner of new services POST COVID-19. Our friends at Coquitlam Public Library are experiencing some good early results.

We love Wellington County Public Library’s #StayAtHome challenge.

Now is the time to reach out to our team and plan deliveries of new material. Contact admin@whitehots.com and get a detailed view of your outstanding material backlog. We can help you schedule a sensible shipping schedule that meets your needs.

Now is also the time to review any ARP programs you might have. Our Fall season is only a few weeks away, we will be reaching out to all our ARP customers to ensure budgets are in line with our existing criteria. Contact Wilma Gould, ARP/Leasing Sales Coordinator, with any questions wgould@whitehots.com.

We are introducing a new shipping procedure that will include a dated notice on each carton to ensure material arrives at your library safely.

Transport Time + Warehouse Time = Quarantined 72 Hours!

No matter where you are, material from Whitehots will have been in isolation for the recommended period.
