We will be offering contactless holds materials pick-up. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. by appointment and subject to staff availability.
For the time being only items available in our building can be accessed for pick-up. Delivery among the libraries in South Central Library System is suspended and may only be running on a very limited basis in the near future.
Returns will NOT be accepted at curbside pickup. Please do not leave returns on the cart or hand returns to staff. This is essential to maintain safe handling of all materials. The book drop is available, though we encourage you to keep your items out until at least until July 1 if possible. Please remember we are fine free, so there will be no penalty in keeping items out longer.
To support social distancing efforts, the library is operating with very limited staff. Staff will fill your holds placed online as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.
