Due to staff time constraints, there is a limit of ten (10) items to be pulled or requested per cardholder by phone or e-mail.
All items checked out through curbside service will be due on June 15.
All library items will be quarantined for 72 hours prior to checkout to assure that they are no longer contaminated with coronavirus.
Patrons are required to remain six (6) feet apart in line while waiting to pick up their items and approach the pickup table one person at a time.
Patrons should not approach the pickup table until directed to do so by library staff.
Staff members will not accept donations for the book sale or payments for bills from patrons during curbside service.
All returned items are to be placed in the branch book drop. Staff will not take returns. Patrons may not enter the library branch for any reason unless they have an appointment to use the computer.
We encourage patrons to wear protective face masks if possible to protect themselves and staff.
Items that are not picked up within a week of when they were prepared for pickup will be checked in and returned to the shelf after a 72 hour quarantine.
