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!
