Bradford Public Library to offer limited services


BRADFORD — The Bradford Public Library will be offering limited services beginning Monday, May 4. At this time, no patrons will be allowed in the library, but we will be filling requests and offering curbside delivery of your materials. Patrons may order material online from their account. Please visit our webpage at www.bradfordpubliclibrary.org to access your online catalog and account. Staff will pull books by the following day and check out for you OR if you do not have access to our online catalog, you may call the library at 937-448-2612 to place your request by phone. Our library staff will need at least 24 hours to process your requests. Curbside delivery will not be available until 11 a.m. every day.

Please note that our delivery services with Dayton Metro, Troy and Search Ohio have been suspended until further notice. We will have access to Bradford items only at this time. We will inform you when these services resume.

If we cannot locate the material you have requested we will make every effort to contact you by phone as soon as possible.

Curbside delivery will be scheduled by phone no earlier than the day following the request. Patrons will be asked for make/model/color of the vehicle when you call to place your request. We ask that you pull into the parking lot, call library staff at 937-448-2612 to let us know you are here and “pop your trunk” so material can be delivered with no contact in our parking lot! We look forward to serving you again and know you are anxious to have access to new material. Every effort will be made to assure your safety, following guidelines of the CDC and Ohio Department of Health, Staff will be wearing masks, washing hands and assessing their health prior to starting work each day. Items returned in our book drop will be set aside for 72 hours before being processed. These items will be given several “free” days so patrons will not have overdue charges.

Watch for special posts online for how to request material online or how to search our Bradford Only catalog. If you have any questions, please call. We want to help you!

As we make changes we will inform you as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience as we “work the bugs” out of the new normal and look forward to serving you!
