Curbside services will cease, though patrons will be able to come into the building to pick up their materials. Additionally, the library has opened its return boxes around for materials.

Home and institutional delivery services will also continue. Additionally, the library continues to offer the Grab and Go Hold Lockers, available 24/7 for contactless pick up of materials. The lockers are located outside at the main building (526 Jersey St.), Lincoln Douglas Elementary, and Iles Elementary. Lockers are also available inside County Market on 48th St.
Patrons who don’t have a specific title in mind but would like to check out materials can take advantage of QPL’s new Q-Picks Subscription Service. Patrons may fill out a form online listing their preferences on books or movies, and QPL librarians will select material for them to try. This form is available online at https://www.quincylibrary.org/q-picks/.
