As businesses in the Greater Lansing area and throughout the state begin reopening, customers will most likely notice it will come in stages. Capital Area District Libraries is no exception.
Since closing its 13 branches and mobile library in March due to the novel coronavirus, CADL is now moving forward with a gradual reopening beginning Monday, June 22.
“I’d like to extend my gratitude for everyone’s patience and understanding during our closure due to the global pandemic,” said Scott Duimstra, executive director for CADL. “We’re excited to get back into our libraries and begin offering in-person services through our contactless item pickup starting June 22. We’ll also start working behind the scenes to prepare our libraries for level 2, which is limited access inside our branches.”
During level 1, items placed on hold can be picked up curbside or at the door, depending on the branch. All items will only be available for pickup after being quarantined for 72 hours.
According to CADL, you can visit cadl.org/catalog to place items on hold, indicating the branch location for pickup, or call your branch to request items. You should have your CADL card information available.
You may place holds on hotspots and passes, but no other Library of Things items will be available for checkout at this time.
CADL will notify patrons via text or phone when items are in and can be scheduled for pickup.
As for level 2 and level 3, CADL will provide that information as it becomes available. Visit cadl.org for more information.
