Curbside Pickup Begins May 11th

Pickup is available every other week, Wednesday and Friday from 10 am to 4 pm, by appointment only. Currently scheduled pickup days are May 13th, 15th, 27th and 29th.
To the best or our ability, all materials for pickup have been handled following Covid 19 hygiene guidelines, AND have been quarantined for at least two weeks to ensure they are safe to share. Even with these precautions, we recommend that you leave materials isolated for 72 hours before opening them.


·         Patrons with current library cards can order materials online, or call 375-5723 to request materials from library staff.

·         All patrons using curbside checkout agree to the following guidelines to protect the health and safety of our community. If you are ill, please consider waiting to borrow library materials.
·         Please note:
o   Your library card must be shown to pick up items.
o   Only local materials at Boscobel are available for checkout. Loans from other libraries are not available at this time.
o   Checkout limits are in place to make safe quarantine of returned items manageable:
§  Individuals:  limit 4 items per account.
§  Family /household (2+ people): 10 items total.
o   Checkout is for two weeks, with one renewal. To meet demand, new items will not be renewable.

·         Library staff will contact you when your order is processed, to schedule a pickup time and give you your identification code.
·         pickups are scheduled 10 minutes apart to maintain social distance.
·         At your scheduled time, please go to the rear parking lot of the library. Your bagged items marked with your ID code, will be on the bookcart outside the door.
·         Staff will be at the door but will not open it or step out. Please show your library card to the librarian.
·         If you miss your scheduled 10-minute pickup window, you will need to call and reschedule for the next available time.

By requesting curbside pickup, patrons acknowledge that they understand the potential risk of shared materials and agree hold the Boscobel Library and City of Boscobel harmless in the event they or a family member become ill for any reason. Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.


·         Any households experiencing the onset of respiratory illness or notified of Covid19 infection /contact are asked to call the library to arrange for the return of materials.

·         During curbside pickup weeks the blue book drop at the rear/ parking lot entry of the library will be unlocked. Items can be returned anytime during that week.
Alternate weeks will be quarantine weeks. The bookdrop will be locked to isolate returned materials- NO RETURNS at this time.
·         All items must go into the bookdrop. Please don’t attempt to hand returns to library staff or put them on the pickup cart.

·         Return only materials checked out from Boscobel.  Items checked out from other libraries need to be taken back to those libraries at this time.
·         Please note returned materials may continue to show on your account until they are removed from quarantine status. Fines will not be added. If you have questions, please call for more information.
