The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library announced Thursday it's switching back exclusively to curbside services due to the rising number of positive COVID-19 cases within the community.

Thursday Update: 7,420 More Indiana Residents Test Positive for COVID-19

EVPL's switch to curbside services will begin on Monday, Nov. 23, at all EVPL locations.

"EVPL To Go", the library's contactless curbside pickup service, will be available at all locations excluding EVPL East due to ongoing construction there.

The contactless curbside pickup service will be available from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday - Saturday.

In addition to picking up holds, library users may also utilize the library’s copy, fax, and scanning services through EVPL To Go.

Library users may also continue to utilize EVPL’s digital collection, which includes thousands of eBooks, eAudiobooks, movies, TV shows, music, and more, available 24/7.

In recent days, several EVPL locations have had to temporarily close due to positive cases of the virus being identified within staff members.

The public library branch had hoped to resume limited in-person services with new safety measures in place like plexiglass barriers in high-traffic areas, but library officials say the decision to revert to curbside services was ultimately made with the safety of library staff and the community in mind.
