Curbside Holds Pickup is off to a great start at the Plymouth Public Library.
Pickup times are from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday.
The recommended way to hold items is to login to your account on the library website – MyPlymouthLibrary.org – and search for what you want. You can also place items on hold by calling the library at 574-936-2324 ext.1007 and speaking with a librarian.
Staff will find your items and check them out to you, then call to let you know you have items ready to pick up. Patrons are asked to wait until they receive a call before coming to pick up items. From the time someone calls you, you will have 48 hours to pick up your items.
Once you arrive at PPL, park in one of the four designated Curbside Holds Pickup parking spots located in the city parking lot next to the book drop. Call the phone number listed on the sign and let staff know which of the four spots you are in. Then, all you have to do is pop your trunk. A staff member will bring your bag out to you shortly, and place it into your trunk for a contact-free experience.
PPL is expanding Curbside Pickup to include document services. You may email documents up to 10 pages in size that you would like printed or faxed to firstname.lastname@example.org – once items are ready, PPL will call you to pick them up via Curbside. Tax forms may also be requested for Curbside Pickup by calling and letting staff know which forms you need.
Our Summer Discovery program is going to be a little bit different this year: hours and access to the building may be limited, but PPL is still going to provide events and the materials to create those crafts for take-home projects, also available via Curbside Holds Pickup. Keep checking our website and social media platforms for more information.
All returns must be done through the book drop until further notice. Staff cannot directly accept items from patrons. And please remember that donations cannot be accepted at this time.
“It has been so good to hear from (and see) some of our patrons again,” said Cindy Clough, Adult Circulation Supervisor. “We miss them, and this new contact-less service has helped alleviate that a little.”
