Skating and Helmet Lending Library

Available during public skating hours, this lending program functions like a library with all equipment being signed out and signed back in at the arena. A valid photo identification (such as a Drivers’ License, Ontario Health Card, or Passport) will be required. Equipment must not leave the arena and under no circumstances be disassembled in any manner. The Municipal Centre also lends skate aids for those who are still learning to stand on two skates.

We are always accepting donations of gently used skates and hockey helmets, as well as monetary donations to help sustain and expand the Skate and Helmet Lending Library.
