PCDL has returned to contactless pickup of library materials as of Monday, November 30. This is due to the increasing spread of COVID-19 within Portage County and bordering counties. Patrons will be able to schedule times to pick up their holds at all of our branches.
Here are the procedures for using contactless pickup:
1.Holds may be placed through our online catalog, or by calling any of the branch locations. If you don’t know exactly what you want and are looking for suggestions or recommendations, our staff will be happy to help you select materials, though we will be limiting those staff-selected materials to five items per transaction. For reading suggestions, we also recommend using NoveList Plus and NoveList K-8 Plus as well as in the online catalog.
2. When your items are at the branch and ready for pickup, you will receive an automated notification by phone, text, or email based on your preferences.
3. We ask that after you receive this notification, you contact the branch to schedule pick up options. NOTE: In the interest of saving trips, if you are requesting multiple items, you may want to wait until most or all of them arrive before scheduling a time.
