Library News : Library closed for Memorial Day
Posted by rsanders on 2020/5/18 16:31:40 (296 reads)

UPDATE: It's been pointed out that Monday, May 25th, is Memorial Day. The library will be closed in observance of this holiday.

Library News : NOTE: Other services
Posted by rsanders on 2020/5/18 14:43:57 (247 reads)

NOTE: We are not currently able to provide document services (COPIES, FAXES, OR COMPUTER PRINTOUTS). The Ingles grocery store has a faxing service; Royal Graphics on Forest Avenue makes copies; and we're working on a method to provide some printout services.

And we're sorry, but we cannot make our meeting rooms available for the time being.

Thank you for being patient -- we're trying to do what we can while providing maximum safety to the library staff and patrons.

Library News : The Porch Pickup Project continues...
Posted by rsanders on 2020/5/18 14:00:00 (260 reads)

UPDATE: Our "Porch Pickup" service officially begins today. We'll have staff on hand for this service on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. You can put books on hold through the PINES app, or call us at (706) 376-4655 to request a book (or books) or other materials. The library building is still closed, but you tell us when you can pick the books up and we'll check them out to you and have them waiting in the library vestibule for you to stop by.

REMINDER: We're hoping to expand to having the building open -- in a limited way -- beginning a week from today. We'll be posting details soon. Thanks for your patience!

UPDATE: Today we had a day of experimentation and started our "Porch Pickup" service... and things went pretty well. We'll have staff on hand for this service on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. You can put books on hold through the PINES app, or call us at (706) 376-4655 to request a book (or books) or other materials. The library building is still closed, but you tell us when you can pick the books up and we'll check them out to you and have them waiting in the library vestibule for you to stop by.

We're hoping to expand to having the building open -- in a limited way -- beginning a week from Monday, but we'll be announcing more details about that (and more details about Porch Pickup) next week.

Have a great weekend, and stay safe!

Library News : UPDATE: Overdue notices/telephone calls
Posted by rsanders on 2020/5/11 14:00:00 (142 reads)

NOTE: Several of our patrons have let us know that they've received an automated phone call about overdue books. The phone calls are generated through the PINES office in Atlanta and are the result of a computer data error that we made. Our "amnesty" policy for fines on overdue books is still in force -- we are not charging overdue fines for books or materials that were checked out two weeks or less prior to our shutting down. We sincerely apologize for any confusion.
