On April 26 the library moved to a new way to book curbside pickups. The reservation system is integrated into patrons’ online catalog accounts and will allow users to book an appointment directly from the “Manage Your Account” library card portal at bark.cwmars.org/eg/opac/myopac/main?loc=55. Individuals will need the account access information for the library card on which the holds are placed. Anyone in need of their library card number should contact the library. The pickup location remains at the Church Street entrance.
