Harrison County library starts curbside service Harrison County library starts curbside service

The Harrison County Public Library is now offering contact-free curbside pickup of books and DVDs.

“The Harrison County Health Dept. has approved our plan to keep the public and our staff safe,” said Alisa Burch, library director. “We have heard from many in our community how much they miss the library, and we are very pleased to get the OK to go ahead with curbside service.”

Here is how it works:

Patrons may place items they want on hold by using the online card catalog found at www.hcpl.lib.in.us or by calling their local library branch.

The library will call patrons when items are ready to pick up.

Patrons are asked to call the library when they park in the library lot.

Staff will place the items in the car trunk, empty passenger seat or on the car hood.

“For your safety and the safety of the library staff, we ask you to please remain in the car while your materials are delivered,” said Burch. “Our staff will be wearing gloves and masks to be as safe as possible.”

Curbside service hours by location are:

Main library, Corydon, 812-738-4110 — Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Palmyra branch, 812-364-6425 — Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Lanesville branch, 812-952-3759 — Monday through Thursday from noon to 7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Elizabeth branch, 812-969-2899 — Mondays and Thursdays from 2 to 6 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3 to 7 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m.  to 4 p.m.

Items to be returned to the library should be placed in the library book drop before calling the library to pick up holds. All returned library materials are cleaned, disinfected and quarantined prior to being shelved.

“We are working to make other library services available as safety allows,” said Burch. “Look for updates on our website, www.hcpl.lib.in.us, and our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/hcpl47112/.”
