Our Library@Home and LibraryOnDemand remain open. There are many virtual LIVE Programs (some have craft supplies you can pick up curbside to follow along with a presenter!), Shared Resources, and Learning at Home resources are available to you. We also have a ton of Librarian Recommended Book Lists, as well as a fun service where our librarians can browse for you if you'd like to Build-Your-Own Bundle of different items to check out and pick up curbside.

Please return all library materials at the outdoor book drops. Returns are not accepted at curbside pickup or at indoor book drops. All returned materials are quarantined for 72 hours before being processed and circulated. During their quarantine time, materials will remain on your account; after they are out of quarantine, the items will then be backdated.

We would like to thank state and local authorities for their authorization and support to reopen our doors to the public.

PCCLD now offers a curbside printing service.
Curbside printing requests will not be available immediately.  The turnaround time may be up to 24 hours.
 
How it works:
 
Customers may request one print job per day, consisting of 10 pages or less (black & white only, no color).  This service will be free of charge.  If a customer needs multiple documents printed, they may submit all files in one email, so long as the page count does not exceed 10 pages. Print requests over 10 pages will not be processed.
 
Customers may send an email to the curbside printing location of their choice and attach the desired files to be printed. 
 
 
Curbside staff will then call and/or email the customer to schedule an appointment for you to retrieve your printouts. The printouts will be placed in a bag for curbside delivery.
