Dear Library Patrons,
My thoughts are with you as we navigate this difficult time. I know how important reading is to keep our minds occupied. To help with this, the Chickasha Public Library will be checking out packages of books.
On Tuesday, March 24, at 2pm, bags of books will be available to check out at the drive-up book drop. This will continue until all the bags are gone, or until 3:30, whichever occurs first.
There will be 6 types of bags available with a limit of 2 bags of different types per household.
A library card must be shown at pickup. (If an individual does not have a library card, I will have bags of used paperbacks they will be able to borrow.)
The bag options are:
Preschool – 10 books – a mix of Easy picture books
Children’s – 10 books – a mix of Juvenile fiction and Juvenile nonfiction
Teens – 5 books – fiction
Adult Fiction – 5 books – a mix of genres
Adult Nonfiction – 5 books – a mix
Adult Books on CDs – 3 books – mostly fiction
The due date is whenever the library reopens, and no fines will accrue. We tentatively plan to offer the book bag check out again next week depending on the circumstances. At this time we plan for the library to be closed through the end of March.
If you have books you would like to return, they may be dropped off at either of the book drops anytime.
Utilize our online resources also. They can be found on our website, https://chickashapl.okpls.org/. Click the tab ‘e-resources’. If you have difficulty getting logged in because your card is not working you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to make it work.
Please let people who may not be on the Internet know about this book bag checkout.
Take care of yourself.
