For your safety and the safety of staff, please follow these guidelines.
Visiting the Free Library
Stay tuned to our Locations page for updates. In the meantime, please use services available at another Free Library location.
The Library has been addressing the issue of the airborne properties of COVID-19 in terms of enhancing the ventilation in the neighborhood and Parkway Central libraries. To this end, the Library has and continues to invest in capital improvements of its heating and air conditioning systems to improve the introduction of outside air into its libraries year round. Additionally the Library has purchased and deployed air purifiers for staff and public meeting and work spaces in all Free Library facilities.
Returns, Holds, and Pickups
When you arrive for your appointment, approach the pickup table at the library's entrance. A Free Library staff member will request your name and pickup time. They will place your bagged materials on the table, and you may retrieve the bag after the staff member has stepped away.
Please arrive on time. Masks are required indoors regardless of vaccination status, and unvaccinated individuals should consider wearing two masks indoors. This will help ensure everyone's safety!
You can also ask a friend, neighbor, or family member to pick up your materials. When you schedule your pickup appointment, tell the staff member that someone else will pick up your materials. Make sure to give this person your full name, phone number, and your library card number before they come to the library. When they arrive to pick up your materials, a staff member will ask them for your name and library card number before giving them your materials.
