Why is the bookmobile parked at the YMCA?
Special to the Whig
Dear Librarian: Why is the CCPL Bookmobile parked at the YMCA of Cecil County?
Dear Reader: We’re so glad you asked!
You may have heard that Elkton Central Library’s parking lot will be closed in August and September for necessary repairs and improvements. For the convenience of patrons who can’t walk to the library but don’t want to drive to another branch, we have part- nered with the YMCA of Cecil County and placed our book drop near their main building entrance.
The bookmobile is also onsite for scheduled hours Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. as well as Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for Elkton patrons to pick up their holds. For more detailed information, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page located on our website: http://www.cecil. ebranch. info/ about- us/ librar ynews/elkton-parking-lot/
While the Elkton Central Li- brary will be open MondayThursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., our six other branch locations will remain open with their regularly scheduled operating hours. Staff are excited to greet and help any patrons who want to visit these branches.
CCPL is also open and available 24/7 on our website, with many digital products and materials to download or stream for your reading, listening and watching enjoyment. Check out our digital devices and downloads page for help connecting to these resources.
Need digital help? Look for the orange box on the right side of our webpages that says “Help with Digital Services” – there are numerous video tutorials to explain and demonstrate how to access CCPL’s digital content.
Our librarians and staff are here for you – contact us on Facebook or give us a call! We can place holds and have materials sent to the branch of your choice, answer questions and connect you to resources. We look forward to speaking with you. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience!
