Residents Eager to Use Library’s Contactless Curbside Pickup Service

(Woodland, CA) – On Monday, June 15, Yolo County Library began offering curbside pickup for library cardholders since branches are still closed based on the State of California’s Resilience Roadmap. The following procedures allow cardholders to easily use the Library’s curbside pickup service: 

  • Request items in advance through the library’s online catalog.
  • Wait for an email or phone notification that the materials are available for pickup.
  • For people driving, text “Here” to the phone number posted after parking in the designated curbside pickup area.
  • For those on bikes or walking, look for the walk/bike curbside pickup area and text the number on the sign when it is your turn.
  • Receive a text reply from staff for reservation name and space number.
  • Materials are checked out and delivered for contactless pickup.
  • Face coverings must be worn and physical distancing must be observed during transactions.

“In these extraordinary times, we are evolving and redefining how we serve our communities,” said County Librarian Mark Fink. “Our new contactless Curbside Service makes it possible for us to distribute books, WIFI hotspots, and other items and protect the health and safety of our customers and staff. We appreciate everyone’s patience.”
