PLEASE NOTE:
Staff will reach out to you after your request with information about the availability of your requested items. 

Please return all materials through the book drop just outside the main library door. The library will continue to quarantine all returns for 72 hours before checking them in.

PRINT/COPY/FAX:
We are also offering curbside pickup for your print jobs. Please email the documents you want printed to pod@prlibrary.org and we will print them when you arrive at the library. You can also upload them directly to the printer using our Mobile Printing System. Need something copied, scanned, or faxed? We are happy to take the documents inside and complete the tasks for you with the upmost respect for your privacy and personal information. If you prefer to do your own copying, faxing, or scanning you can always request a 15 minute appointment to come inside, one household at at time.

TAKE AND MAKE KITS
Looking for fun activities for everyone in the family? Along with curbside materials, we’ll also be distributing “Take and Make” kits for both kids and adults. These kits include everything from early literacy learning materials and S.T.E.A.M. activities for kids to recipes and D.I.Y. projects for adults. Ask us what our latest offerings are- we try to have at least two different kits per month for both kids and adults!
