While all branches of the Colusa County Free Library remain closed at this time, the main branch in Colusa will be offering curbside pickup for library materials Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. for the next six weeks.
To utilize this pilot program, patrons need to place a hold on library materials by logging into their Colusa County Free Library account using their library card information at
https://librarycatalog.countyofcolusa.org/ or by calling 458-7671.
Once items have been placed on hold, patrons will be notified via email or phone that their items are available for pickup and a pickup time will be scheduled.
“At scheduled pickup time, patron will park curbside and retrieve their item at the designated curbside pickup area at the branch,” read a release issued by the Colusa County Free Library. “Items will be checked out to patrons in advance and staged in a bag for convenience. Staff assistance will be provided to those who need help due to mobility limitations.”
According to the release, library staff will be employing social distancing and public health recommendations including placing all returned items in quarantine for 72 hours and providing checked out materials in a plastic bag to reduce contact.
The library is working to expand curbside service to the other branches in the future, read the release, while working to restore all library services and access as soon as possible in a safe, coordinated and phased effort in accordance with the County’s public health guidelines for operations.
