LOS ANGELES (CNS) - The Los Angeles Public Library today launched evening pick-up hours at more than two-dozen locations, along with a free remote wireless printing service that allows patrons to print out up to 10 pages of content a day.
“Library To Go'' branches will offer pickup service for holds placed using the online catalog between 12:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with pick-up service hours from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays as the library buildings remain closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We're thrilled to expand our services to include Library To Go evening hours and remote wireless printing pick-up for patrons who have traditionally relied on using computers at the library for printing,'' City Librarian John F. Szabo said. “Evening hours and Printing To Go are the latest in our ongoing efforts to expand our services and make it easier for Angelenos to access the library.''
The Library To Go program allows people to make an appointment to pick up materials from tables outside the libraries while waiting in a designated area, wearing a face mask and maintaining physical distancing while collecting their materials.
With the library system's new “Printing To Go'' pickup service, patrons can request a maximum of 10 free pages of content per day in either black-and-white or color with one business day's notice. More information about the printing service is available at lapl.org/print.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said the expansion of the Library To Go program “will open the doors of great literature, learning, and exploration to local children and families -- and make this critical neighborhood asset available to more Angelenos at a time where our civic resources have never been more valuable.''
