Curbside Carport Service is now available to all patrons.  Call 270-298-3790 and tell us when you will be coming, as well as what car you are driving.  We will ask what your reading likes are and try to pull materials for you.  Staff will checkout your materials and wait for your arrival.  The exchange will take place on the carport.  So...drive around the back of the building and come down the side next to the jail.  Pull up on the open carport and honk.  A staff member will bring your books to the vehicle and take your returns.  You can also reserve books online and, if they are available, we will pull them and call you for pickup.
