Switch your notices to TEXT or EMAIL ASAP

After decades of use, our automatic telephone notification system has made its last call. As it is outdated and unable to be repaired, this software and machinery will not be replaced. Effective immediately, we need affected patrons to choose a new method to receive notices:

                TEXT or EMAIL (highly recommended)
                POSTAL MAIL (not recommended due to slow delivery times)

Please contact any BCLS branch library to update your notice delivery. If you were one of the patrons who did not receive a phone notice in early January, we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience!

CURBSIDE ONLY UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

BCLS is providing curbside service only at all branches until further notice. If you have questions or need assistance, call your local branch location. The Bookmobile will continue to operate during this time, with items passed through the window. At Wirt, you are welcome to use either curbside or the pick-up window located on the east side of the building (Madison Ave).
