Library Operations Altered Due to COVID Numbers

 Due to the increasing number of COVID cases in the State of Pennsylvania, the Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity will implement the following response plan.

Let Us Bring Your Library Materials to You
in Your Vehicle!

Effective immediately, the MLNV staff prefer to bring your patron materials
directly to you in your vehicle.

After scheduling an appointment via MyLIBRO, simply call us when you arrive, tell us what parking spot you are in and the color of your vehicle, pop your trunk, and we will bring the checked-out materials to you - while you stay warm and dry in your vehicle!

How Do I Schedule a Curbside Pickup Appointment?
It's easy!
Download the myLibro app (available on iOS and the Google store).  Find "Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity" on the dropdown menu.  Type in your library card number (all 14 digits, NO spaces).  Your library PIN will be the last four digits of the phone number the MLNV has on file under your account UNLESS you had previously changed your PIN.   For help with your library card number or pin number, reach out to [email protected].  Once your account is created, you are all set!
If you make a curbside appointment using a web browser, you will be required to sign in just like the app starting on Monday, November 23rd.  To sign in, input your library card number (all 14 digits, NO spaces) and a PIN (last four digits of the phone number you have provided us with).  If you run into any problems, you can reach out to us at [email protected].

What If I Can't Schedule an Exact Pickup Time?
Please still make an appointment - it helps us plan.

What If I Miss My Pickup Appointment?
Please still come!  Pickup appointment times are approximate.
We know you're busy, there's traffic, etc...

Have Your Hours Changed?
Beginning, Monday, November 23rd, the library will operate in a modified manner.
The hours of operation will be as follows:

Monday 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Tuesday 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
Wednesday 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Thursday 10:00 am - 7:00 pm
Friday 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

These hours will remain in place until further notice.

Can I Still Come in the Library?
Yes.  You must wear a mask covering your mouth and nose.  If you browse in the open section of the library, we request that you wear library-issued disposable gloves (available as you enter the building) and make your selections in a timely manner.

What If I Want a Book That's in a Part of the Library I Can't Access?
If you are looking for a book you found in our online catalog, we are more than happy to bring several books from our collection for you to consider.

Can I Still Use the Computers?
The number of public workstations available to the public is being reduced to 2.
We ask that you limit your computer usage session to 30 minutes. 

How Do I Return My Library Materials?
Returns should be made outside in the book drop.  The inside book drop will no longer be available beginning November 23rd.  Please continue to place your library materials in a closed plastic bag.

What Happens When I Return Materials?
Returned materials are quarantined in their bags for seven days.  (If your materials are still on your record days after you returned them, don't worry!)  They are then carefully wiped with a sanitizing wipe before being reshelved.

Can I Still Renew Materials?
Yes, absolutely - call the library or renew them via your library account line.  Auto-renewals will start on Monday, November 23rd.  Your items will automatically renew for two more weeks UNLESS the item is on hold for someone else.  You will receive a notice with a new due date and/or information on items that cannot be renewed.

for your patience as we continually monitor the situation
for the health and safety of all patrons and staff!
