Due to recent news about the coronavirus in Iowa and recommendations from state and federal agencies, we’ve decided to take the following measures for the safety of our patrons and staff:

Beginning Thursday, March 19th the library is closed.  Due dates for items currently checked out have been extended to May 5th.  All meetings and programs at the library have been canceled or postponed.  Library staff will be working regular hours.   We will be answering phones and responding to messages during working hours.  There will be no late fees while we are closed.   

Curbside Pick-up

Due to the immediacy with which the library closed, the library will be offering a curbside pickup Thursday, March 19th  through Saturday, March 21st. Curbside pick-up availability for the following week will be posted by Saturday, March 21st.   Please follow these steps to take advantage of our curbside pickup option: 

 

1) Place your holds by either:

  • Going to our online catalog, logging in to your account, and placing holds on the items you would like to check out
  • Calling the library (563-488-3975) and speaking with a staff member during regular library hours or leaving a detailed message after hours  
  • Sending the library a text message (563-235-2086) of all desired materials
  • Sending the library an email (mylibrary@wyoming.lib.ia.us) of all desired materials

Please Note:  If you place holds by phone, text message or via email, we cannot guarantee the materials you want will be available.  All patrons who leave a message will receive a phone call confirming whether or not materials will be available for pickup. 

 

2) Pick-Up Schedule:

When your materials are available for pick-up library staff will contact you to schedule a pick-up time.  Available times will be:

  • Thursday, March 19th 2pm to 6pm
  • Friday, March 20th 2pm to 5pm
  • Saturday, March 21st  9am to 12pm

 

3) Curbside Pick-Up

When you arrive to pick up your books, please DO NOT exit your vehicle.  We want to do our best to maintain social distancing as recommended by local and national health officials.  Please find a parking spot and call the library (563-488-3975).  A staff member will bring items out to your vehicle.  

Other things to note:

  • We have increased the DVD checkouts to 10 per library card at this time.
  • Library materials can be returned in the book return while the library is closed.  Please note these items will not be checked back into the system immediately and will remain on your account till they have been cleaned.   

If you have any questions, please call the library (563-488-3975), send an email to mylibrary@wyoming.lib.ia.us, or send a text message to 563-235-2086.  We appreciate your patience, as we work to both serve the public and slow the spread of COVID-19 as best we can.
