Library launches curbside pickup program Monday

Adam Curtis At A Glance

While the library’s lobby will reopen Monday, to include takeout orders at the café located inside, most of the library building will remain closed until further notice and a curbside pickup program will be available in the interim.

The curbside pickup program starts Monday and will be available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday. Patrons may place up to 10 items on hold via the library’s digital catalog or by calling the library (520) 458-4225. Then they must call the library to schedule a time to pick up their items from the front of the library.

The pickup program will be contactless, meaning staff will not be available to handle returns or any other services at that time. The items will be labeled with the patron’s last name and the last four digits of their library card number.

Patrons may now make returns via the library’s drive-thru drop box located in the library parking lot. Starting Monday, book drops by the library entrance will be open from 10 to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

A temporary computer lab will also be available starting Monday located off of the lobby inside the Mona Bishop Room. Patrons will have an hour limit and computers will be available on a first-come, first-served basis Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Patrons are urged to only use the computer lab for critical needs.

The library also urges patrons to avoid loitering in the lobby or near the entrance and to practice social distancing by staying at least 6 feet apart.
