NCRL libraries in Grant, Okanogan, and Ferry counties offer curbside services starting August 10th
- Moses Lake, WA
Starting Monday, Aug. 10, most libraries in the three counties — which are all in Phase 2 or 3 of the state’s reopening plan — will begin accepting returns of books and other materials that were checked out before our libraries closed in March due to Covid-19.
In addition, those same libraries will begin curbside pickup services on Thursday, Aug. 13th. Library card holders will be able to place holds on material available at their local branch either by calling the branch or online and then stop by between the hours of 1 and 4 p.m. any day the branch is open to pick up the materials.
Masks will be required for all patrons utilizing curbside pickup.

Due to rising COVID-19 infection rates, NCRL is unable at this time to resume any services at its libraries in Chelan and Douglas counties, which are still in Phase 1.5 of the governor’s reopening plan. The Mail Order Library, which is headquartered in Wenatchee, also remains closed.
North Central Regional Library Said that they are continuing to work closely with the Chelan-Douglas Health District to restart some library services in those two counties as soon as possible.
All NCRL library buildings remain closed to the public in all counties, which means there is no public access, no meeting rooms, no restrooms, and no computer use. Additional services will be restarted after all five counties in the library district reach Phase 3 and the governor has issued guidance to libraries on next steps for reopening.
Free Wi-Fi is goin to continue to be available at all library locations 7 days a week. A recent project extended Wi-Fi coverage up to a 600 ft radius around all NCRL buildings.
