Richmond County Public Library

Contact-Free Book/DVD Pickup Service

 

September 1, 2020

While our library remains closed to the public, we are offering a book and DVD pickup service during our reduced library hours

We will be scheduling pickups between the hours below at the Welcome Desk at the RCC campus in Warsaw.

Monday 4-7pm, Tuesday 11am-2pm, Wednesday 11am-2pm, Thursday 4-7pm, Friday 10am-Noon

The library will check out books or DVDs and place them in biodegradable paper bags with names on each bag on a cart just inside our main building entrance adjacent to the Welcome Desk for pickup at the designated time while maintaining social distancing. Although RCC’s buildings are closed to non-student visitors, you can come inside at the Welcome Desk to pick up or drop off books.

To request books or DVDs (or a combination of the two) for pickup, please send an e-mail with the subject line “Pickup Request” and the following information to library@rappahannock.edu

  1. Your name

  2. RCC campus (Glenns or Warsaw) where you wish to pick up your books.

  3. Top two choices of pickup times during the hours posted here above (PLEASE NOTE: we will try to accommodate your time choice, but to in order to reduce crowding and maintain distancing, we  will e-mail you your exact pickup time beforehand)

  4. A list of items wanted to checkout and whether each item is a book, audiobook on CD or a DVD (sometimes we have a title in more than one format). Please limit your requests to no more than 10 items per day

Requests will be filled in the order received and an e-mail confirmation will be sent beforehand confirming your pickup time and location .

Library staff will wear masks while handling these books, but anyone concerned about the books/DVDs safety may want to leave them in their bags for 72 hours before opening, after which no coronavirus germs are thought to survive on surfaces.
