PALM SPRINGS — The City Council has given the green light to the Palm Springs Public Library to begin offering materials to be reserved and picked up at the Library. Naming this service Library-A-Go-Go, the Library will allow card holders to reserve up to five (5) items at a time.

Patrons will need to go online and log into their account to place holds — or call the Library Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and staff can assist. Once holds are ready, the Library staff will call and set a pick-up appointment time on Mon. – Thurs. between 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Once patrons arrive for their Library-A-Go-Go appointment, library administrators ask that they please stay in their car and call the Library 760-322-7323—having their Library card number ready when they call. Their materials will be checked-out and staff will put them on the table outside the door. Once staff returns inside, they can exit their car to pick up their materials from the table, a contact-free transaction.

When items are returned, the library is asking everyone to please use the book return slot only. All materials will be quarantined for 72 hours prior to checking in and returning to the shelves.

“We believe this procedure will keep everyone safe, healthy and happily using the library again,” Jeannie Kays, director of Library Services, said in a prepared statement.

The Palm Springs Public Library offers a varied and comprehensive collection and online resources to the community. The Library is located at 300 S. Sunrise Way, on the corner of Sunrise Way and Baristo Road. For more information about the Library call 760-322-READ (7323) or click here.
