Oak Ridge Public Library begins curbside pickup
OAK RIDGE, Tenn. (May 18, 2020) – Oak Ridge Public Library is pleased to announce that beginning May 18, the library will offer curbside pickup of library materials.
Here is how it will work:
In order to place holds on materials, patrons will need to go to orpl.org and click on the Catalog tab. From there, patrons may search for and place holds on books, audiobooks, music CDs and DVDs. Patrons will be notified via text, email, or phone call when their materials are ready to be picked up.
Please park in one of the parking spaces designated for library pickup and call the number on the sign. You will be asked for your name and the last four digits of your library card, as well as the number of your parking space.
Once you have spoken with a library staff member, please open your trunk or car door. Library staff will bring your materials out and place them in your car.
Here are the details:
When will the library re-open?
The library does not yet have a date to reopen. This summer, the library roof is being replaced. Once the construction on the roof has progressed to a stage where it is safe and once we can be sure that our patrons and staff can be kept healthy, we will re-open to the public. We have been working diligently while we are closed to update our collection and our building. We can’t wait to show you what we’ve done. In the meantime, please keep an eye on our Facebook page for upcoming programs, news, and events.
