Starting Monday, Los Angeles County libraries began a phased reopening, offering a sidewalk pickup service at some locations.
Bookdrops will also reopen for those returning items.
At 24 libraries, bookworms can take the following steps:
Local news from across Southern California
Find a library closest to you here.
If you have a library card, find your book of choice and put it on a hold. You can also do this by phone.
Call the library once you have received notification that your hold is available.
Go to the library and park in a designated sidewalk service pickup. Be sure to wear a face covering.
Call the library at the number listed on the parking sign.
Staff will give you instructions, and you’ll be asked to wait in a designated area while wearing a face covering.
Your book will be brought out to you.
Return the book by the due date. Bookdrops will reopen.
