News on resuming some library services
Curbside pick up service
Beginning on Thursday, May 21, users may begin placing holds through the library catalog online, or by calling their local branch. Holds will be limited to fifteen (15) items on a card at any time. The library will call users to schedule pickups on those items starting on Tuesday, May 26. Curbside pickup will be arranged in such a way that items will be left at certain time on tables near the entrance(s) of the branch(es). Upon request, items can be placed in your trunk or back seat. The library will only be loaning books, DVDs, and audiobooks during this period. Launchpads, Literacy Kits, telescopes, and so on will not be available for holds.
Once the library starts curbside service, items being brought back will still need to be returned to the book returns. For safety reasons, staff will not be able to take items directly from users.
Beginning Monday, June 15, the library will reopen for people to come into the buildings. Library hours will be limited, right now 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Additional hours on some evenings and Saturdays will be added soon. Certain areas of the library will not be open, such as meeting rooms and study areas. Once it has been deemed safe, more areas will be opened and more services will be reestablished. The Bookmobile will not run for now, but service will be resumed soon there as well. Curbside service will continue for those that want it, but the hours will be more limited once the library reopens, since staff will be more needed in the buildings.
