LaFayette Public Library Curbside pickup
The LaFayette Public Library is open for curbside pickup (only). Here is how it will work:
As things come into the library via the book-drop, they will be quarantined for 7 days before they are checked in. At that time, the check in date will be backdated to when they were put into the book-drop, so it looks they were returned on the drop off date. This way both the staff and the patrons can be rest assured that the items that are being handled for check out or put into delivery to other libraries are safe from contamination.
You can place holds (reserve an item) as you normally would: either online (click here for instructions) or by calling us -315-677-3782 (see hours below)
Picking up items
Once things are checked in after the quarantine period, holds notifications will go out (via phone, email and/or text). If you are notified that something is here for pickup, or if you would like something to be put aside for pickup, please contact us to make arrangements at 315-677-3782. Here are the times we will be taking calls to arrange pick up (Note: hours are for you to call to arrange pickup times):
Monday & Tuesday – 10 – 6:30
Wednesday – 10 – 4:30
Thursday – 12 – 6:30
Friday 10 – 4:30
Curbside pick up
At this point, you will have notified us to arrange pickup. At the designated time, we will check the items out and bring them to you. We ask that you either roll down a rear window or pop the trunk to minimize staff contact with door handles, etc. Thank you for your cooperation!
*PLEASE NOTE: we will not take any items from you at this time. If you have items to return, please place them in the book drop. As mentioned above, we have a separate procedure to safely remove items from the book drop to put them into quarantine.

For now, all Summer Reading Program performances will be virtual. We will be posting a schedule, sign up, etc. momentarily
