Press release from Alachua County Library District
News from your Library
We’re looking forward to a busy August with new ways for you to participate, connect, and discover with your library. This month, we are launching virtual book clubs and Grab & Go book bags! We are also continuing to offer computer and copier appointments, the next phase in the gradual reopening of our buildings.
Curbside service continues at all branches Monday-Saturday 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Visit our Current Services page for the latest information. Thank you for your support and flexibility as we adapt to serve you and our whole community under new circumstances.
Call for Computers
Need to complete a job application or copy some paperwork? One-hour computer appointments and 15-minute copier appointments are available at all branches Monday-Saturday. Patrons are required to wear a face covering and practice social distancing during appointments.
Call your branch to make an appointment for the current day or the next business day.
Fresh out of reading recommendations? Bored with old books? Try our new Grab & Go service launching Aug. 3.
Call any branch and let us know what type of books you’re craving – romances, true crime books, beginner books for kids, graphic novels, etc. We will pull 3-5 items for you and have them ready in one hour. Come to your branch and call when you arrive to receive your Grab & Go bag!
As summer winds down, we’ve lassoed our best back to school resources for you. Peruse early childhood development books, homeschooling tips, free online learning tools, and bilingual education resources.
