Curbside Service: Safe, Contactless Access to the Library
Start date: Monday, June 1st, 2020
I. What is curbside service?
a) Returns – you can return items and library staff will retrieve them in a contactless manner.
b) Holds – items can be reserved by calling ahead or placing a request online. Patrons can also request in-person and a library staff member will retrieve it.
All returned materials must be quarantined for 2-7 days. At that time, items may go back out into circulation.
II. Temporary Library hours
Thursday, 9 am - 11:30 am / 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm.
Friday – 3:00pm to 6:30pm
The 90-minute mid-day break on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday will allow staff time to properly disinfect high contact areas, handle returns, re-shelve materials, pull books for holds, take a lunch, etc.
III. Temporary policy changes for library service
a) Interlibrary loan service: ILL will be suspended until further notice
b) Book Donations: no book donations will be accepted at this time
c) Office services (copies, faxes, scanning): suspended to limit exposure from patron-provided documents
