County Libraries Come Back to Life . . . Cautiously

The Fairfax County library system this
week rolled out a process both to disseminate materials for the first time in more than two months, and also give guidance
to those wishing to return the roughly 500,000 items that county residents have been holding at home during the COVID19 pandemic.
Library officials on May 28 announced
that libraries, starting June 1, will provide
curbside distribution of materials placed
on hold by borrowers. Library-card holders can call individual branches to request specific materials for pickup, or request
a “grab-bag” of items selected by staff
based on reading level and preferences.
Materials will be provided outside;
patrons should call the library upon arrival (having pre-ordered the materials to reduce wait times) and remain in vehicles
until materials have been deposited on a
pickup table and staff have returned to the building.
Materials will be packaged in plastic.
For those who wish to return materials, library officials are making book drops available 24 hours a day, seven days
a week, but are asking patrons to return
them on a rotating basis so the system is
not overloaded:
• Those with last names beginning with
letters A through H are asked to return
materials on Mondays.
• Those with last names beginning with
I through Q are asked to do so Wednesdays.
• Those with last names beginning with
R to Z are asked to do so Fridays.

Returned materials will be quarantined
for 72 hours, library officials said, based
on guidance from public-health officials.
All due dates – for materials borrowed
before the pandemic hit and those now
being borrowed – have been extended until the library branches are reopened, and no fines will be assessed in the interim.
