The library is happy to announce the start of Curbside Pickup service starting Monday, June 22nd. At the start, our service schedule will be Monday through Friday from 1 pm until 6 pm. On June 22nd, we will also enable holds again, meaning that you will be able to place materials on reserve through our online catalog. If you already placed a hold prior to our closure in March, you will keep your place in line. Once an item is held for you, a staff member will call you or email you, depending on your stated preference in your record, to arrange a time for pickup. You will be given detailed instructions on what to do when we notify you that your hold is ready.
At this time, we ask that you begin returning items that you have out on loan from before the library closed in March so we can begin fulfilling requests from other patrons. If possible, please return Fairchild library items to Fairchild and main library items to main. Due dates have been extended until June 30th. Thank you for your cooperation.
Please note, this is the first step in reopening the library system and we need to evaluate how well this process works before expanding it to more service hours, days and locations. We are also working on making modifications to the existing libraries and providing staff training so that we can begin limited access to the buildings moving forward. We ask that you remain patient with us during this time while we work through the guidelines provided by the State, the Town administration and local health authorities. The health and welfare of the staff and town residents is our primary concern and we will err on the side of safety as we move forward.
Director, The Trumbull Library System
