The Grandview Heights Public Library will begin offering curbside pickup for held items and mobile printing of 10 pages or fewer beginning Tuesday, May 19.

Library book drops also will reopen on that date, although the library's building will remain closed to the public indefinitely, according to library officials.

Curbside pickup hours will be 1 to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 1 to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday at the library, 1685 W. First Ave.

Patrons will be able to place holds on physical items via the library's online catalog at ghpl.org or by calling the library at 614-486-2951.

After they receive notice that their items are being held, they will be able to come to the library to use the curbside pickup service during scheduled hours.

Patrons will be able to return items using the library book drops only. Returned items will be quarantined for at least three days before being checked in and made available to other patrons.

Patrons should not return items if they or a member of their household are ill. Late fees are not charged for overdue library items.

When they arrive to pick up items, residents should proceed to one of the curbside pickup parking spaces and call a staff member at the phone number posted on the sign. They should remain in their vehicle and unlock the trunk.

A staff member will locate the patron's held items, check them out to the patron and deliver them to the vehicle's trunk.

Staff members will not hand items directly to patrons. They will wear masks and patrons are requested to do the same.
