Danville, Ill. (WCIA)
Danville Public Library has begun offering curbside delivery of library materials as of Monday,
May 11, 2020.
Patrons will be able to request books, DVDs, CDs and audiobooks, which will be pulled by
library staff and bagged together. Patrons are to pull up to the west side facing doors at their
scheduled time. Staff will place the bagged items on the designated table. Patrons are asked to
stay in their vehicles until staff have returned inside the library building.
Taking precautions to ensure the safety of library staff and patrons has been at the forefront as
library staff put together steps to implement curbside pickup. For these reasons, the library is
locking the outside book drop and requesting patrons not to return items they borrow until the
stay at home order is lifted. Items will not be due until June and no late fines will incur.
Staff will follow the recommended steps for social distancing and be equipped with disposable
gloves, cloth masks and sanitizer.
Curbside delivery will be available Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
To request items, patrons may call the library during the curbside hours or fill out the form
available at any time on their website: www.danvillepubliclibrary.org. Library staff will contact
patrons to verify card numbers and schedule pick up times.
“We are looking forward to providing curbside delivery service to our patrons,” states Director
Jennifer Hess. “We’ve been thorough in our discussions to work out a process that safely
provides service to the public.”
