Grab ‘n’ Go!

Posted on by CurtisTownshipLibrary

 

Curtis Township Library is planning a new, temporary service called “Grab ‘n’ Go!” which will begin about a week after library employees are allowed to go back to work.

How it works:

1. Reserve books, dvds, and audiobooks from the library either online or by calling the library during our open hours, which will be limited initially  (loans from other libraries will not be available until a later date.)

2. Staff will pre-check out your items and place them in a brown paper bag and staple your “receipt” to your “to go” order. And the bag will be placed in the lobby on a table just inside the front door.

3. You will be called to arrange a scheduled pick up time.

4. All items should be returned to the Book Drop.

A menu of packages like Blue Plate Specials will be available for those folks that like surprises.  Watch for announcements on further developments sometime in June 2020.
