CUDAHY, Wis. (SPECTRUM NEWS)— Libraries across the state of Wisconsin will soon offer drive-by book pickup.
With Governor Evers “Safer at Home” orders slowing rolling back through phases, libraries will be one of the first few places to offer up their inventory.
Libraries across the state of Wisconsin are preparing to adapt once again. They will soon be offering a drive-by book pick up.
The Cudahy Family Library is preparing to do just that.
Inside the library are hundreds of books bursting with words just waiting to be read. However, for the past few weeks, they haven’t been touched. Libraries will soon be allowed to offer curbside pickup of books, movies, games, and much more.
“Now that there are some restrictions that are being lifted we are able to do curbside pick up again, we are going to be doing it a little more. carefully,” Cudahy Family Library Circulation Services Supervisor, Clay Anderson said.
Clay Anderson with the Cudahy Family Library says customers can either go online or call in their orders and the books will be sanitized before and after pickup. The pickups will be contactless to ensure everyone's safety.
“I can’t wait to get back to it. We need to help people get through this in the best way we can and that’s providing information education and entertainment,” Anderson said.
The library will offer books, CDs, audiobooks, movies, and much more to those looking for some entertainment or even education during this time. For now, the library is preparing for pick-ups beginning this week.
“Getting everybody on the same page, what are the produces going to be, what information we are going to need from patrons from their orders. Since we had prior’s experience with it, it shouldn’t be too difficult it should be pretty seamless I think,” Anderson said.
The Cudahy Family Library will begin curbside pick up starting this Friday.
