While the Calimesa Library remains closed to the public, it is offering Express Services where patrons can pick up items they have placed on hold after receiving a notification.
The Calimesa Library, which is part of the Riverside County Library system, has posted information on its website of how the Express Services work.
After placing a hold on items, patrons will receive a notification when the items are available for pickup. Patrons can then call the library to schedule a pickup time.
Patrons must wear a face covering while picking up their holds, or if one is forgotten, they can call the library and staff will work with them to arrange another pickup time.
When picking up holds in a designated area, patrons must also have a library card or photo ID with them. If needing assistance or for any questions, patrons can call the library upon arrival.
When ready to return materials, use the outside book drop only and do not attempt to bring them into the building and hand them to staff.
All returned materials will be quarantined before being reissued again, as recommended by health and safety officials.
All due dates on existing checkouts will be extended appropriately in order for items to not become overdue. Due dates on new checkouts will follow normal checkout periods.
