Public Library moves to curbside service only Nov. 13
Nov. 12, 2020—The Georgetown Public Library will begin offering curbside pickup of reserved materials; the building will be closed to the public starting Friday, Nov. 13. The shift to curbside-only service follows the announcement yesterday from the Williamson County and Cities Health District that the County has moved into the orange phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, characterized by high spread of the disease in the community.
Hours for curbside pickup service at the Library are 10 a.m. to noon and 2-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m. to noon and 2-5 p.m. Saturday. The Georgetown Public Library is at 402 W. Eighth St.
Books, DVDs, and other library materials can be requested for curbside pickup via the Public Library catalog website at catalog.georgetown.org. Items and previously reserved craft kits can be picked up in the Ninth Street parking lot. Patrons should have a mobile phone, park in a designated spot, and follow the instructions on the sign at the parking stall. Materials will be brought to their vehicle by Library staff.
Returned materials are being accepted in the drive-through book return slot in the Ninth Street parking lot. The Library does not charge fines for overdue items. Donations are not being accepted at this time.
