The Opportunity Center at the Ladd Library will open for four hour sessions the remainder of this week to provide a location for people needing space to work remotely. A limited number of individuals can call to reserve a space at the Opportunity Center to bring their technology (laptop or tablet) and connect to the internet.
At this time, sessions are available from 9 am – 1 pm OR 1:30 pm – 5:30 pm through Friday, September 4.
Anyone interested in one of these sessions may call the Opportunity Center during office hours at 319.739.0456 and someone will assist you. Masks are required to be worn when in the building.
Grab and Go Holds are now available in the entry of both Library locations the following hours:
Monday – Thursday, 10 am – 7 pm; Friday – Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm. Once notified holds are available, patrons are invited to visit the Library during these self-service hours to pick up their items from the entry way of the Library. Patrons are required to wear a mask and must have their library card or use the virtual card found on the MLN Mobile app to check out materials. Patrons can also key their library card number in by hand.
Public computers are available at both Library locations by appointment up to four days in advance. Visit CRLibrary.org/computers to make a reservation or call 319.261.READ and staff will assist you.
Due to the disaster response still taking place in the Ladd Library parking lot, curbside holds and drive up returns are currently suspended.
Due dates have been extended until August 31 and items may still be returned at the walk-in drop box at Ladd during Grab and Go hours, at the Downtown Library drive up, the Hiawatha Public Library, and area Hy-Vee drop boxes.
