Bookmobile offering Curbside Pick-Up!

ACLA Mobile Library Services will be offering curbside pickup at the Ben Avon stop on Saturday morning, August 8 from 9:30am – 10:30 am. This will be a non-contact drop off of requested items in brown paper bags and collection of items that need returned. No bookmobile access will be granted at this time due to concerns over the inherent confined space of a bookmobile. A staff member will hand you your pre-checked out items through the door, and your returns can be placed in the receptacle we will have outside the truck. There is no county-wide delivery up and running yet, so requested items will be limited to our collection. Please call (412) 321-1853 to let us know what you’re looking for, and we’ll see if we have it!
