PRINCETON — The Princeton Public Library will be filling book and DVD orders beginning Monday, June 1. Patrons will be able to place their orders by calling 815-875-1331, by email to email@example.com or by signing into their accounts remotely through the Princeton Public Library website, www.princetonpl.org.
The library will only be able to fill orders in-house for their own cardholders, as access to other libraries' patrons and materials remains unavailable.
Once requests are assembled, staff will check out the items for the patron and notify them when their order is complete. Staff will schedule a time with the patron to pick up their bag of materials in the foyer of the library. These bags will be alphabetically organized by the patron's last name and first initial.
Patrons will not be allowed further access into the library at this time. Public restrooms will also be unavailable. In addition, everyone entering the building will be asked to maintain social distancing standards and wear face masks. Appropriate signage will remind everyone of current safety protocols.
The library hopes to offer more services in July if the number of COVID-19 cases continues to decline according to the governor’s orders. The next step will allow the public into the library with social distancing and face masks. The library board continues to prioritize the safety of the staff and the community above all other concerns.
