Librarian's Picks -- CSA‑Style Request

Fill out our new Curbside Books & Materials Request Form to tell us what you're hoping to get and which library you want to pick them up from. Library staff will place holds on a selection of books and/or other materials for you that are already on the shelves at that particular library. It's like a Library CSA Box!

Safety

All staff working the service receive training and the personal protective equipment necessary to keep themselves, other staff, and the public safe. All employees wear face coverings and the library asks that library customers wear face coverings and observe social distancing best practices.

Library buildings are closed for browsing but open for computer use and printing access.

There are still delays in moving materials due to reduced delivery schedules and quarantine periods.  Please be patient as it may take items longer to arrive than they have in the past.
