  5. Staff will place your items on the cart outside the library’s main entrance at the library at your scheduled pickup time. To respect the library’s social distancing efforts and zero contact pick-up, please wait until staff have re-entered the library building to retrieve your items from the designated pickup cart.
  6. All library materials enter a 3-day quarantine and disinfecting protocol once returned to the library, so not all items listed as “IN” in the library catalog are immediately available for checkout.
