Belleville Public Library Offers Curbside Pick-Up Starting June 8
Belleville, Ill. – June 1, 2020 – Beginning Mon., June 8, the Belleville Public Library will offer curbside pickup services to library patrons.
“Even though we are not able to open to the public yet, we want to be sure to offer our residents more services as the state slowly begins to re-open, and we’ve devised a safe way to do that,” said Director of Libraries Leander Spearman.”
Five parking spots will be designated for library pick-up by a traffic barricade and signage in the parking lot on Washington adjacent to the library. Patrons should park in defined spot, then call or text the phone number provided on signs, and should provide their name, library barcode, and space number. An employee of the library will then deliver the items to the patron’s trunk.
There is a limit of 10 items per account and one library account can be utilized per household. If in the case library staff are unable to fill requests for a specific title, staff may make substitutions based on availability of material.
“As Illinois begins to open, library services will also begin to open as we can to be compliant with the state’s Restore Illinois Plan,” said Spearman. “Keep your eyes peeled for more information as we can’t wait for library services to be fully restored.”
