McClelland Library Curbside Service: Starts November 4th, 2020
The McClelland Library is now offering curbside book checkout.
Are you a member of the Irish Cultural Center and McClelland Library? If so, you can checkout books from our library with your McClelland Library Card starting November 4th, 2020. If you are a member and do not have your library card yet, you can request one through the link on this page.
- You can browse our holdings through the online catalog, linked on this page. You will need the title and author of the books you wish to checkout.
- To request books for check out, you can fill out the form on this page, or you can call 602-864-2351 every Wednesday from 10:00AM – 3:00PM. Curbside service and library phone staffing is currently only offered on Wednesdays, but we hope to increase availability in the future.
- Once you submit your form, we will send you an email to confirm when and if your books are available. This can take a week depending on the number of requests received. All book requests are processed at the library on Wednesdays.
- After you receive your confirmation email, your book order may be picked up on Wednesdays from 11AM – 2PM in the parking lot of the Irish Cultural Center. Once you reach the parking lot, please call the posted number on the sign and we will bring your books to your car. A mask is required to be worn for curbside pickups. Please keep in mind that the McClelland Library building is closed to all visitors. We are unable to help you with your curbside pickup if you do not remain in your vehicle. Your email confirmation that your books are on hold will contain further instructions. Please designate who will be picking up your books in the form below if you will not be picking up the books yourself. Please make sure whoever picks up the order brings their photo ID.
All book returns must be placed in the McClelland Library drop box outside of our parking lot gates to ensure all library materials are properly quarantined. No book returns will be taken inside the Cultural Center gates by staff or volunteers. The book drop is available 24hrs a day, 7 days a week. Due to item quarantine procedures, books will not be checked in on the day they are returned. Because of this additional requirement, any late fees will continue to be waived. However, fees for lost or damaged items are still applicable at this time.
For any questions about our curbside service, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org . You can also call 602-864-2351, but please remember the library is not open and we will return your call the following Wednesday when we return to the building.
