Thank you for your patience as we slogged through the first two weeks of curbside service. To give you an idea of the volume of work this entailed, consider this:Between July 13 (first day of curbside) and July 30, we checked out 1,761 items and had 397 appointments to choose from. And that was just at the Main Library in Hillsborough.
As we moved through those days, we heard how appreciative you are to be able to check out materials. We also heard that appointment times were too hard to come by.
In response, we have increased the number of appointments we have on any given day and we now offer weekend appointment times at all locations.
A couple of things to keep in mind when you're reserving and picking up materials.
- If you have multiple orders, we'll gather all of your items so you can pick them up during one appointment time.
- Before you finalize your order, select the curbside location that works best for you. For example, if you live closer to Carrboro, feel free to request one of those sites to pick up your materials.
- Bring your library card with you to your appointment.
