USING YOUR LIBRARY FROM HOME
We understand that not everyone is ready to come visit us in person just yet. We will continue to provide virtual resources and services that you can access from home or from outside our building:
- Our drive-thru service is open during regular business hours. You are welcome to place holds using our catalog and pick them up at our drive-thru when they are ready. Be sure to select Fountaindale Library Drive-Thru Window as your pickup library when placing your holds.
- Please note, beginning Monday, June 15, we will no longer check out your holds to your library card in advance of picking them up. We will also no longer call you when your holds are ready for pick up; we will notify you via your preferred method for receiving library notices. If you would like to change your preferred contact method, log into ‘My Account’, click ‘My Record’ in the left sidebar and scroll down to ‘Contact Information and Preferences’.
- Please return materials to any of our four external book drops. We are not accepting returns at service desks, but there are return bins located in the lobby that you can use. The drive-thru is for materials pickup only.
- Join us for new and exciting virtual events and programs every week!
- Outreach Services will continue to make contactless deliveries to our home delivery patrons.
- Our Wi-Fi will continue to reach our parking lot daily from 6 a.m. until midnight.
