The Putnam County Public Library District will begin curbside service Friday, June 5. For times for each location, they will be announced on the library district’s website and social media during this period.

The district cannot order items from other libraries outside of Putnam County at this time. The district is only serving patrons within Putnam County. No one with a library card from a neighbor library outside of Putnam County will be able to check out items from any Putnam County branches at this time.

Call any of the branches ahead for staff to make a list of requests and to have orders ready. Staff will come out to vehicles and ask for library cards and place the items either in the back seat or in the back of a vehicle. Please wear a mask when picking up an order.

People may also order online through Prairiecat on the district’s website, Items returned will have a seven-day quarantine period before someone else can check out the item again. If someone would like to have a fax, copy, or laminate an item, staff can do that as well. Returning items can be placed in the drop box at local branches in the county.

At this time, the district is not allowing any patrons inside the building. Don’t forget the district still has its digital library collection ereadillinois, hoopla, kanopy, overdrive/Libby, and RBdigital, which can be found on district’s website.
