CULLMAN, Ala. – The Cullman County Public Library on Thursday announced it will transition to curbside-only service beginning Friday, Dec. 11. Holly Pond’s Guy Hunt Memorial Library is following suit.

The Cullman County Public Library released the following:

In practicing an abundance of caution in order to keep the library open and prevent having to close entirely, the Cullman County Public Library will be temporarily moving to curbside service only starting Friday, Dec. 11. On Jan.11, we will reassess the need for contactless service. No overdue fees will be charged for materials.

You can access our curbside request form on our website.

When you request materials, they will be placed inside a locker in front of the building, and you will be contacted with what that locker’s combination is so that you can pick up your items. When you are finished with your items and would like to return them, just place them in the book drop on the east side of the building.

Our computers will be available, but only by appointment for school matters or personal business. We will offer faxing and notarizing by appointment as well. You can set up an appointment by phone, text or email.

You can also email us what you’d like to have printed, and we can place it in a locker for you to pick up, just like with curbside requests.

Staff will be on hand to assist patrons via call, text and email Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Note: Pickups can be made after hours.

We also would like to encourage our patrons to enjoy the library’s numerous digital materials with Overdrive and Camellia net. We offer magazines, eBooks, audiobooks and videos.
