FAIRMOUNT PUBLIC LIBRARY WILL BE OFFERING CURBSIDE SERVICES TO PATRONS, BEGINNING MAY 26.
The Library building will remain closed, but patrons may begin to enjoy new library materials by calling (765)948-3177 with their request; e-mail email@example.com or use the contact form on the website, under the CONTACT US button; or by going to your library account and place holds on those items you would like to check out.
Once we process your request, staff will contact you with the details (if we found everything requested or did substitutions) and schedule a pick-up time. Once in the parking lot, call the library and staff will bring the items out to your vehicle. We are striving for no contact service.
All materials must be returned in the outdoor dropbox to ensure that the materials are placed in guarantine and santized for everyone’s safety.
Documents/Faxes: Please call the Library to obtain pricing information. You will place items in the dropbox with payment; staff will process the work; and then deliver the paperwork out to your car, maintaining no contact service.
During curbside service, computers will not be accessible. The library is still available for research questions.
We are working to making the library a social distancing and safe building for all staff and patrons and plan to move slowly through the Governor’s Back On Track guidelines as they fit with our county and community.
WiFi may still be accessed from outside the building through the password: goaheadandread. The network is fpl.
HOOPLA is available 24/7 with your library card number, an e-mail address and Internet service: hoopladigital.com.
