Curbside pickup returns to Okanogan NCW branches

NCW - NCW Libraries is excited to announce the return of several services throughout the five-county library district. 

Starting Sept. 14, residents across Okanogan, Ferry, Grant, Chelan and Douglas counties will be able to checkout any item from our physical library collections and receive those items either through curbside pickup or by mail, NCW Libraries Communications Director Michelle McNiel said in a media release last week.

In addition, the Chelan and Douglas County library branches will begin accepting returns at their book drops on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Libraries in Grant, Okanogan and Ferry counties - all in Phase 2 or 3 of the state’s reopening plan - started offering curbside pickup last month. The state Department of Health recently approved curbside library service in Chelan and Douglas counties, which are still in Phase 1.5.

Curbside pickup services will begin at libraries in Bridgeport, Wenatchee, East Wenatchee, Cashmere, Peshastin, Leavenworth, Entiat, Chelan, Manson, and Waterville on Sept. 14. 

NCW’s Mail Order Library will also resume services on Sept. 14. This service allows library card holders the ability to reserve any item in the NCW collection and receive the item via USPS at their home address, at no cost to the patron.
