Montgomery County Public Libraries Holds to Go

 

Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL), whose buildings have been closed since March due to the COVID-19 health crisis, started its contactless pickup service “MCPL Holds to Go” on Monday, July 6. Library customers will be able to place holds on items online or by calling a branch. When the items are ready to be picked up, the customer will get an email with instructions for making an appointment to pick up their holds.

When the customer arrives at the branch for their appointment, the library materials will already be checked out and waiting on a table for pickup.

Holds to Go is the latest service being offered by MCPL as Montgomery County continues to recover from the health crisis.

Virtual programming continues, with a broad selection of programs available for children, teens and adults. Library book drops are now accepting returns. Materials are being held for a minimum of 72 hours before they are checked in, so customers will see returned materials on their accounts for several days.

Branches also are providing telephone service during select hours. Hours and phone numbers can be found on the MCPL website. No services will be provided on July 3 and 4 for the Independence Day holiday.

Chef Dolores picked up seven books at our local branch library on Monday afternoon. They put your books in a paper bag and leave them on a table at the library entrance at the appointed time.

Hello Roy - I have noticed in our area the book return of our local branch library has been reopened after months-long closure.  In the meantime, they have been promoting many events onlines.  Of course, budget cuts are also a part of the landscape as well.

Glad to hear that your County library is making progress in reopening Roy Kelley . We would be lost without our library and in fact were for the time they were closed. We had the "pick-up" program for a couple of months but have now reopened the entire library to the public.

Roy, this probably is good news for you and Dolores!   I read you had surgery, what happened?

That sounds like a well planned solution to get books into the hands of the borrowers, Roy.

I have not posted recommendations on the recent books I have read. My scheduled posts and much more has disappeared.
