Following the Governor of Virginia’s phase one guidelines, JMRL plans to move into Tier 4 of their COVID-19 response on Tuesday, May 26.
JMRL branches (with the exception of Nelson Memorial Library due to ongoing construction) will reopen with a contactless curbside pick-up only option for library holds from Tuesdays-Saturdays between 10am and 2pm.
Northside Library will offer pickup at the drive-up window.
During this phase, no special kits (such as toy kits), will be available to check-out.
Patrons can once again place holds on the JMRL website and the return due date for all library materials has been extended until June 24.
Please be aware, there may be delays in holds due to the 72-hour quarantining of materials and limited delivery.
If patrons no longer want their holds, they should cancel them by going online or calling their branch.
Beginning May 26, specific instructions will be posted outside of each branch detailing how patrons will collect their materials and patrons can call their library branch for more details. Specific branch details are also located on http://www.jmrl.org (under the “Branches” green tab).
Book returns must be made through the book drops.
Patrons should continue to follow social distancing guidelines while participating in the curbside pickups, including no contact and no access to the library buildings.
JMRL is still not accepting donations of books or media at this time.
More information, including access to virtual storytimes and other events, is located on http://www.jmrl.org.
