Library system staff will contact patrons to schedule a convenient time and materials will be pre-checked out to each customer for 3 weeks unless otherwise noted on the checkout receipt. Bagged materials will be placed on a chair or table outside of the library with physical distance from the staff for pickup at the appointed time. You may be asked for your name, library card number or other identifying information as you drive up.

This is the COVID-19 virus

The Scott County Library System is not offering face-to-face services at this time and we don’t have a reopen date for our library buildings. In order to protect our staff and community, the library is monitoring the situation and will adjust the dial on services with the safety and well-being of our community and staff at the forefront. For the interim, the library is still providing our contactless library services. We are pleased to offer curbside pickup by appointment for Scott County Library cardholders, and we are accepting returns in our book drops but no donations at this time.  Patrons can place holds using our online catalog or by calling (563)285-4794 and pressing 0. Please [ Click Title for Full Article ]
