Buckley residents can now get books from library

The Buckley library, along with 14 other Pierce County libraries, are now offering curbside service.

Curbside service has been available since it launched at eight locations on July 20, and is expected to expand to Bonney Lake starting Aug. 17.

Visit curbside.pcls.us for Library Curbside hours for each location.

Follow these steps to use Library Curbside:

• Using a Pierce County Library card, select and place a hold on the books, movies or other items through the Library’s online catalog (polariscatalog.piercecountylibrary.org/polaris/default.aspx). If a person does not have a library card, they can get one immediately online at www.piercecountylibrary.org/ecard.aspx?id=1502.

• The Library will text, email or call when items are ready for pick up.

• Once notified hold requests are ready, reserve a time to pick up items at Library Curbside, via curbside.pcls.us, mobile app (www.piercecountylibrary.org/services/mobile-app.htm) or calling the local Pierce County Library (www.piercecountylibrary.org/branches/branch-listing.htm).

• At the Library Curbside booking time, drive to the library and through a contactless service, staff puts the items near the rear of the vehicle, or at a designated space for walk up / bike up service.

Readers also have the option to select a Grab Bag with three staff-picked selected items based upon answering a few questions about personal preferences or an Activity Pack with activities to spark ideas and creativity for all ages.

Print Pickup of 8.5 by 11-inch size prints is also available at Library Curbside. Individuals may print up to $3 in typical print charges per week with their library card; that’s 30 black and white copies, six color copies.

People may walk-up or bike-up for Library Curbside appointments and those without an appointment can follow information posted outside of the library buildings. Although, people without appointments should expect longer wait times.

Social distancing and masks are required for service. In compliance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and requirements from the Washington State Office of the Governor and Department of Health, everyone age five and over must wear a face covering while on library grounds.
