Libraries now offer curbside pickup

Get your groove on! Scout and Ruby Holmes dance along to Storytime on Facebook Live, hosted on Wednesday mornings by Michelle Humber, children’s services director at the Pinedale Library.

Returns also being staged by alphabet

If there is a book readers wish they checked out before the Big Piney and Pinedale libraries closed some weeks ago, both are now offering no-contact curbside pickup slots.

Wish you gathered Atlas Shrugged or War and Peace as the pandemic closed down the library? Want to watch the second season of Outlander one more time (sorry – I have all four).

Using the Sublette County Library’s online library catalog is the preferred method to help you find what you are looking for and if is available.

Place a hold on the items and in Big Piney on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3 to 5 p.m., and in Pinedale on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thurs- days, 3 to 5 p.m., they will be bagged and ready to pick up outside the library. Cardholders can check out up to 10 per library card per day.

For instructional videos to use the online library catalog and place items on hold, go to sublettecountylibrary.org/Events.

Big Piney cardholders can also email BP-

[email protected] or call 307-276-3535 between 12 and 3 p.m. Pinedale Cardholders can email [email protected] countylibrary.org or call 307-367-4114 be- tween 10 and 12 a.m.

Orderly returns

Those who have gone through the armfuls of books and movies they checked out six weeks ago can start returning them, 20 at a time, for the libraries’ three-day quarantines and sanitiz- ing. Due dates are still suspended so they can be returned later if unread or unwatched.

Drop-off dates are organized alphabetically by last names.

• Monday: Last name starts with A-E.
• Tuesday: Last name starts with F-J.
• Wednesday: Last name starts with K-O.
• Thursday: Last name starts with P-T.
• Friday: Last name starts with U-Z.
The libraries are still offering adult and kids’

events. Big Piney Library posts its Repurpose, Refresh and Reuse craft series on its Facebook page and the library website. Thursdays, Ms. Genavieve performs live Storytime at 10:30 a.m. on Facebook. Previous videos are posted on the Big Piney website’s Kids page.

In Pinedale on Wednesdays, Ms. Michelle performs live Baby and Me at 10:15 a.m. and Storytime at 11 a.m. for kids older than 2. All videos are posted on Facebook and the website.
