COEUR d’ALENE, Idaho — The Coeur d’Alene Public Library is resuming curbside service on May 4, as Idaho prepares its four-stage plan to reopen.

The Library says the building itself is staying closed for the time being, but customers will be able to return checked-out items and pick up items between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. They can also put items on hold.

“This the first phase of what we hope will lead us back to regular operations,” said Library Director, Bette Ammon. “A lot depends on people continuing to make an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.”

The Library will be partially staffed during this transition time, though the Lake City Public Library will stay closed for the time being.

A courier service between libraries in the Cooperative Information Network (CIN) will resume on May 4, as well, though not all libraries may be able to participate.

All returned items will be quarantined for three days before going back on shelves, according to CDC recommendations.
