Scott County Public Library Now Offering Porch Delivery Service!
Are you unable to get to the library safely? The Scott County Public Library Outreach Services Department is excited to announce their new Porch Delivery Service. Patrons who are unable to visit the library due to age, illness, injury, or hospital recoveries can now have library materials such as books, audiobooks, CDs, & DVDs delivered to their homes.
SCPL Outreach Manager, Mercedes shares, “We understand that those designated as vulnerable populations by the CDC or those who are caretakers to vulnerable individuals, have a more difficult time getting to the library. Our Porch Delivery Service is contactless and our staff wear gloves and masks when delivering items to your front door.”
For any questions or to set up a delivery of library materials, please call the Scott County Public Library at: (502) 863-3566
“Library Express” courier stations are located in Sadieville and Stamping Ground.
Patrons may return items in the book drop that is located at 131 Springview Drive in Stamping Ground.
Similarly, a book drop is available in Sadieville adjacent to City Hall at 605 Pike Street. In addition, lockers are provided for patrons to pick up library materials on Mondays and Fridays after 6 p.m. in Sadieville.
Here’s how it works: Place items on hold and indicate that the pick-up location is Sadieville. The library will notify you when the items have been delivered to the lockers, and you will have two days to collect them. You will open the locker using the last five digits of your library card number and then press ENTER.
SCPL also operates a traditional bookmobile that travels throughout Scott County on a regular schedule. It carries a wide variety of materials available for checkout, and offers computer use for accessing the Internet and the SCPL catalog. Patrons may also apply for library cards when they visit the bookmobile.
Bookmobile stops may be cancelled due to holidays, vehicle maintenance, or inclement weather.
