Beginning Monday, May 18, the Georgetown County Library System will offer curbside delivery of books at all its branches. Although the facilities are still closed to foot traffic, patrons can order books online or by calling, then pick them up during operating hours.
Directions on the curbside delivery process are on the Library website, georgetowncountylibrary.sc.gov, and on the Georgetown County Library Facebook page. In broad strokes, after a patron orders books, library staff will call when the order is ready, and they can be picked up during operating hours. Library staff will bring the books to the patron’s car and place them in the trunk.
“We wanted to come up with a system to reopen our collections to our valued patrons, but also protect the community from the ongoing health concerns of COVID-19,” explained Library Director Dwight McInvaill. “Curbside pickup of books is part of a stepped process of reopening our facilities in the safest, most responsive manner possible.”
Curbside delivery hours are as follows:
Georgetown and Waccamaw Libraries: 10 am – 6 pm
Andrews and Carvers Bay Libraries: 10 am – 2 pm
Feel free to call your library branch with questions or to order books, beginning May 18: Georgetown Library (843) 545-3300, Waccamaw Library (843) 545-3623, Andrews Library (843) 545-3621 or Carvers Bay Library (843) 545-3515.
