As part of Nashville Public Library's phased reopening plan, it will open eight locations to offer curbside service, including the main library and branches in Bellevue, Bordeaux, Edmondson Pike, Green Hills, Hermitage, Madison and Southeast Nashville.
Those with library cards can browse available items on the library's website and select a pickup location. Upon arrival, patrons will find signs for designated pickup areas as well as a phone number to call, at which point library staff will place reserved items in the backseat or truck of an individual's car.
Patrons must present their library cards to staff members by pressing the card against the window, according to library officials. For those traveling to the library with any mode of transportation other than a personal car, items will be placed on an outdoor table for pickup.
Items can be returned to any of the eight reopened locations using book drops or provided return carts, the release said. For more information on the service, visit www.library.nashville.org.
