Delivery


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.

Delivery Schedule

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:  closings@bridgeslibrarysystem.org.  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.
