NEW BUFFALO — The New Buffalo Township Library is planning to offer curbside delivery to its patrons beginning June 15.   

According to a June 8 press release: “At this time we are focusing on preparing our workspace for receiving, quarantining and shelving items for delivery. This means training staff, preparing spaces for materials,  gathering all supplies needed to keep the building and materials sanitized and getting our policies ready for the public. We can just now have staff return to our building, so we can finally begin to get curbside ready. We have a lot to accomplish in one week!”

Hours of operation will be limited in phase one, and will be posted on the library door and website.

“We are not sure when the building will be ready to open to the public. We must follow the Governor’s phases and we must have everything just right to ensure the safety of our patrons and our employees. At this time we could only open with limited occupancy and patrons would not be allowed access to the whole building.”

The library will continue to offer online services such as a virtual Summer Reading Program and story hours.

“We will have our Adult Summer Reading Challenge as well, online.  MelCat will resume at this time, and patrons can place their Mel orders online or call us if they do not have access to the internet. And of course, we will have our ebooks and other online media available, such as Hoopla and OverDrive.”

Patrons may visit our website at for announcements, updates and instructions.  If they do not have internet access, the library’s phones will be answered beginning June 15.
