How to use the library during COVID-19


Posted on June 30, 2020

There are several ways that you can request library materials during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Updated Jun 2021.

The first, and most often use method, is simply call the library.

Call us at (870) 438-6700 and tell us the list of the books or movies that you want. We will grab them off the shelf for you so they are ready when you get here.


In Person Browsing/Computer Usage

You may come into the library for a maximum of 2 non-consecutive hours. (That is 2, 1 hours time-slots.) We do ask that you wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before you enter, and we ask for your name to help keep track of your time in the library. After your time is up, we ask that you leave so we can sanitize the computer you were at, or the books you may have touched, so we can maintain a virus-free environment.


Curbside Service or Home Delivery!

If you choose not to enter the library for any reason, that’s okay too! We will bring books out to you, or make copies/faxing for you, but everyone is welcome in the library.

We can also bring books or movies to your house if you sign up for home-bound delivery service and live within 5 miles of the library.


Online

You can also access our OPAC (online catalog) by clicking here. You can search for books, put items on reserve.

Your username will be your entire library card number as shown on the back of your library card, and by default, the password is 1234. You can change either of them after you log in. After you search for the book you want, click RESERVE” and the librarians will pull the books or movies off the shelf and have them ready for you.
