Starting Monday, July 20 at 10 a.m. the South Branch Library will offer curbside pick and in-person computer appointments again.
On July 13, South Branch temporarily suspended services due to a possible exposure of coronavirus. The facility has since been thoroughly sanitized to ensure public and staff safety. Any holds that were moved from South Branch to North Branch during the suspension will be transported back to South Branch on July 16. These holds will be available for pickup starting July 20 and will remain available until July 24.
All Library locations offer drive-up window pickups for held items, appointments for computer/internet use, virtual book-a-librarian assistance, phone and e-mail reference, reader’s advisory services, and account assistance.

If a patron has a physical item that they need to return to the Library, the book drops will still be accessible. Once items are returned, Library staff will sanitize them for future use. For patrons unable to return items, the Library’s fine-free policy will protect them from any potential penalties.
