Libraries in Jackson and George counties offering Curb-side Pickup Service
Jackson-George Regional Library System is again offering Curb-side Pickup Service at all locations beginning May 6, 2020. In an effort to continue serving our patrons during the COVID-19 crisis, branch libraries are offering curbside service. This will allow library customers in good standing to pick up library materials they have placed on hold or have requested by phone without leaving their vehicle.
Patrons should call their branch library, give their name or other information and a staff member will collect requested materials. All materials will be sanitized before delivery. Customers must allow up to 24 hours after placing holds/requests for staff to collect and prepare them for pickup. Customers must park, call, and present their library card and a photo ID. The customer’s account must be current with no fines or fees over $10, and fines cannot be paid at curbside. Once notified, customers must promptly pickup their materials within 3 business days or the item will be removed from holds.
Curbside service is available Monday through Thursday, 12:30 to 6 p.m. and Friday, 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at all JGRLS locations. This limited service may be limited or cancelled when there is a shortage of staff or inclement weather. All book returns are open.
For more information, call the main library at 228-769-3060. Visit www.jgrls.org for further notices and information or on Facebook at JacksonGeorgeLibrary.
