Curbside Pickup at JTL
Dear Jericho Town Library Patrons & Community Members,
It has been a long two months of quarantine, and I--your fearless Library Director--am finally back to good health and excited to announce our library’s first iteration of Curbside Pickup! That’s right, once again you will be able to check out items from our beautiful Town Library.
Keep reading for instructions on the magic of Curbside Pickup!
Wait...how does this work exactly?
Each individual in a household is able to check-out up to 5 items at a time (yes, even if you’re three years old and yes, that can include DVDs). You can either request 5 specific titles, or select a bundle that our library staff will choose for you. Let’s call it: Librarian’s Choice! If you do not currently have a library card, just fill out
this easy form! Need ideas on what items to request? Browse our online library catalog!
How do I submit my Curbside Pickup request?
Please use this awesome Google Form! If you are unable to place your request digitally, you may also call us at (802) 899-4686. Please do not email your requests.
What if one of my specific titles isn’t available
Let’s face it. You have great taste...this is bound to happen. But don’t fret, you can indicate on the form if you’d like us to replace the unavailable title(s) with another choice. (Don’t worry, we also have great taste.)
What are these book bundles?
What happens after I submit my requests?
As a small, rural library (that loves you a whole lot) but often has a staff of one, we will fill your requests as readily as possible. Titles will then be packaged in paper bags and labeled just for you. We will call or email you when your titles are ready for pick up.
When and how can I pick up my requests?
After you are contacted via email or phone, our Curbside Pickup days and hours are:
When and how do I return my items?
We have extended library borrowing periods to five weeks. JTL is a fine free library, we want you to enjoy your materials and not worry about overdues during this time. Please do not return any library items when picking-up your Curbside requests. Stay apprised for designated Return Days, when library materials may be returned en masse.
Can I leave you a postcard with high fives and hearts?
I have more Curbside Pickup questions. What’s the best way to contact you?
Please email: email@example.com or call (802) 899-4686.
JTL’s phased re-opening plans are informed by directives from the Governor’s Office, Vermont Department of Health, Vermont Department of Libraries, and other local, state, and federal associations. And we really, really miss you. You’re great. Keep being kind and we’ll see you soon!
