Libraries Reopen for Curbside Pickup

  • Share:
June 12, 2020
York County Libraries will open for curbside pickup of library materials starting Monday, June 15.   Members reserve books in advance at yorklibraries.org and are notified when the items are ready for pickup at the library.   Monday, June 15 is also the first day that members may begin returning checked out materials to library book drops. 
The decision to offer curbside service is in alignment with the direction and recommendations of the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, Governor Tom Wolf, Pennsylvania’s Department of Health and the CDC.  “This is step one of the reopening process for our libraries,” says York County Libraries President Robert F. Lambert.  “We will gradually reintroduce our breadth of library services while working to provide a safe library environment for our employees and members.” 
 
According to Lambert, the staff is receiving training on recommended cleaning and disinfection procedures and will follow safe handling and quarantine protocols for returned library materials.   Protective barriers are being put into place, and staff will wear masks and other protective gear for personal and public safety.  York County Libraries are asking that members wear masks or face coverings when utilizing the curbside pickup services.  At several library locations, pickup of materials will be in the lobby.  Only one member or family will be allowed inside at a time.  These measures are required for everyone’s health and safety.
 
All physical library materials currently checked out through York County Libraries have been renewed until July 1 and no fines are being assessed on these items.  Services at Salem Square Library, Manchester Township, and Springettsbury Township will not be offered during this initial phase of reopening.
 
York County Libraries have been closed since March 15 at the direction of Governor Wolf and the Office of Commonwealth Libraries to help flatten the curve of COVID-19.   “During our closure, there was a significant uptick in the need and use of our digital library services,” says Lambert.  “We renewed and issued over 1,000 new library cards to residents and enhanced our delivery of online services to meet the needs of community members.”  York County Libraries offer digital story times, over 80,000 digital library materials for loan, 80 electronic databases, and online book discussions.  All are available for free with a York County Libraries card.  Community members without a card are invited to request one at yorklibraries.org at no cost.      
 
York County Libraries include 13 libraries that provide the latest in print and electronic information, best sellers, Wi-Fi, story times, book discussions and more.  Their librarians are passionate advocates for lifelong learning, providing opportunities and resources for all ages.
