Faster Delivery of Holds & Shorter Wait Times
PCLS has increased delivery of new books and books on hold to the branches as a result of Public Survey feedback.
Although we have no official Courier position to move the requested library materials from branch to branch, our staff deliver the items when they go to provide programming in the surrounding communities.
Books and other items are delivered twice per week to each branch and an additional delivery the day before a holiday for those last minute items.
We are thrilled to serve you!
