Delivery is the backbone of resource sharing throughout Bridges Library System. The physical transiting of items allows citizens access to the greatest number of items and enables libraries to maximize their resources. Bridges Library System proudly sponsors daily delivery (Monday-Friday) to each of its member libraries.
The library schedule is listed below. If a library closes due to inclement weather or for any other purpose, Bridges Library System should be notified by sending an email to: email@example.com. Bridges Library System staff will get the news. Once the staff receives your email message, we will notify our courier (if it affects delivery) and can post your closing as news on the website, tweet it on Twitter, and post it on Facebook.
Remember, the time of arrival listed below is estimated. Also, libraries unpack their delivery bins on varying schedules. Don’t assume an item is available until its status shows as “held” in CAFÉ.
Estimated Arrival Times at Libraries:
* Please note that the ETA’s are time estimates of arrival and can contractually fluctuate up to 40 minutes earlier or later, depending on each day’s delivery volume, road conditions, weather, and traffic. Bridges Library System delivery connects with South Central’s Wisconsin Libraries Delivery Network.
Delivery problems including late/missed delivery or damaged materials requiring replacement should immediately be emailed to Laurie Freund at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Problems requiring immediate attention should be emailed to Laurie Freund at email@example.com, be sure to include details and photos as appropriate. If the materials are damaged and no longer able to be circulated then please send those to Laurie’s attention at the Bridges Library System Office.
