Additional Information for Closing

Hi Everyone!
Here are some additional details for you for our closing beginning Wednesday, March 18:
·        Due dates are being adjusted in our computer system so there won’t be any fines during our closing. 
·        If you are finished with items, you can return to them to the book drop at any time.  Returning items as you finish will help keep our staff from being overwhelmed with items when we reopen.  Our staff will be checking the drop daily and sanitizing items as they come in.
·        Please do not leave book donations at this time
·        Our wifi is still up and running 24/7 and can be accessed outside if you want to pull up in your vehicle
·        Staff will NOT be able to get items for you during our closing
·        You can still check items out through our online options: Download the Libby app for books, audiobooks and magazines OR you can use Hoopla for instant downloads of movies, music, books and audiobooks (We’ve increased the limits for Hoopla to 10 for the time being)
·        Our staff will be available Monday- Friday from 10:00-12:00 to answer phone calls if you need assistance with card/pin issues or navigating Libby and Hoopla.  Please leave a message if no one is available.  You can also e-mail soduslibrarydirector@owwl.org
·        We do not have a date for reopening yet, but we will provide updates as soon as we know.  Thank you for your continued understanding and patience during this rapidly changing time.

Holds Suspended

A notice from PLS:

Starting Saturday, March 14, 2020, the Pioneer Library System (PLS) will suspend the option of placing holds in OWWL. This means neither library staff nor patrons will be able to order library materials from another member library. Additionally, PLS will suspend delivery services which will result in no movement of library materials between member libraries until further notice. PLS will reevaluate this stoppage of service on Friday, April 3, 2020, with guidance from local and state government agencies.

This plan of action was made with the health and safety of our system staff, member libraries staff, and library communities as a top priority. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we respond to rapidly growing COVID-19 concerns.

Also: The Sodus Community Library will remain open unless we are advised otherwise from the Health Department.  Since this could change at any time, we recommend picking up holds in a timely fashion.
