Readers, rejoice: The Delaware County District Library’s four branches, shuttered since March 16, will begin rolling out curbside service Tuesday, May 26.
All four libraries have been closed for more than two months due to statewide restrictions to quell the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
The main library in Delaware will offer curbside services starting May 26; the Orange branch’s drive-up window will open the same day, according to a May 20 press release.
Curbside services will begin June 1 at the Powell branch and June 3 at the Ostrander branch.
Limited reference services via phone also will be available at the branches on their reopening dates.
Library patrons can log into their online accounts now and make requests to be picked up, and will be notified when materials are available.
When patrons arrive at curbside-pickup locations, they should park in a designated space, call the posted number, then open their vehicle’s trunk or back door to allow employees to deliver items.
Books and other items checked out now will have a due date of June 15. Return bins are open, but patrons are asked to return items as they check out new materials to avoid overflow.
Returned items will be quarantined for four days before being checked in.
