The Georgetown Public Library is offering curbside pickup once again after being closed due to the novel coronavirus, it announced April 27.

Curbside pick up allows patrons to drive by the library and pick up preselected books, CDs, DVDs and more along the Ninth Street entrance.


Curbside hours are Mon.-Fri. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m; the service is closed Sunday.

The curbside option, a service that is always available at the library, was temporarily suspended due to the Williamson County "Stay Home Stay Safe" order. While curbside was closed, the library offered home delivery service to all of its patrons within the city of Georgetown. With curbside open, that service has been reduced to only serving patrons who are home-bound due to ability or illness.

GPL Marketing Coordinator Rachel Pattillo said the curbside option allows the library to service more people. The interior of the library remains closed.
