The Pioneer Library System has reopened physical locations with multiple guidelines in place for the safety of customers and staff as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
Many services are still available, but customers who visit should note several changes:
Hours of operation have been altered by branch location. Visitors can see exact hours and schedule on their branch’s webpage. On days with longer hours of service, branches will close for an hour midday for a cleaning of the library and a staff change.
Customers are able to reserve a time slot for public computer use in advance of physically coming to the library by calling 405-792-0777. After calling, you will be prompted to follow the steps in the automated phone system to select your library and place the reservation. Please have your library card number and PIN number available when you call. Two 30-minute computer sessions may be accessed daily.
The library can be used for copying, faxing and scanning. Staff will advise and pull items for customers hoping to browse materials.
Pickup of materials also is available and may be done through a curbside service. Parking spaces will be designated for curbside pickup, and customers should follow the instructions on the sign at their parking space after they arrive.
Physical library programs are cancelled through at least August 31. Meeting room reservations are canceled until further notice. Plans are in progress for some of the performances, originally planned for this year's Summer Learning Challenge, to be presented online, likely through the Pioneer Library System's Facebook page.
The library's digital and virtual resources, which have seen an increase in use during the closing, continue to be an option for those more comfortable staying home. Thousands of choices are offered through the OverDrive, Hoopla and Kanopy services available here. Digital items are also available on mobile devices through the PLS Connect app which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
This is an unprecedented time and we are grateful for your continued support and patience. Please continue to monitor our website and social media pages for further information and digital programming and activities.
