  • Curbside pickup is available to the general public Tuesday-Saturday beginning at 11am. Curbside pickup will end 1 hour before the regular closing time each day.

  • Curbside pickup from 10 am - 11 am Tuesday-Saturday is available ONLY for high-risk patrons.

  • To check out items you must have a library card in good standing (no fines, not expired)

  • You must allow a minimum of 2 hours from the time you reserve books before attempting to pick them up. Items reserved when the library is closed will be available for pickup the next business day.

  2. Staff will take items outside and place on the folding chair located beside the night drop.

  3. Staff will go back inside.

  4. You will exit car, retrieve your items, and return any items you have to the night drop. 

 

PLEASE NOTE

Preliminary research indicates that Covid 19 can remain on items up to 3 days. Therefore, items returned to the library will be placed in quarantine, and therefore will not be checked in, for no less than 72 hours. You may still receive the automated computer-generated late notice emails for up to 4 days after returning an item. Please disregard these notices if you have returned your items. Please do not call the library to inquire if we retrieved your books from the night drop. No late fees will be charged during this quarantine time.

 

 

The doors may be closed but the library is still here to serve the community any way we can. Along with being able to check out books via curbside service, we can also offer internet search assistance and printing services.
