There is currently no water or heat in the building due to the break.

Staff are working with community partners to ensure people who were hoping to use the library as a warm-up location are taken elsewhere.

Canada Post is also being affected by the weather conditions, which is impeding mail delivery in southern Saskatchewan, including Saskatoon and Regina.

Officials said while every effort is being made to deliver the mail, some may not receive delivery on Friday.

They added that normal delivery will resume once conditions improve.
