NORMAN — Book boxes available
During the repair period for the James C. Nance Memorial Bridge between Purcell and Lexington, the Pioneer Library System is working to offer more options for Lexington residents.
The library has worked with City Manager Charlie McCown and his staff and will add book boxes adjacent to Lexington City Hall, 111 W. Broadway St. The boxes will be on the corner of the city hall building in the doorway alcove between city hall and the Lexington Police Station.
The book boxes are lockers that resemble mailboxes but hold books that customers request from the Pioneer Library System catalog at justsoyouknow.us.
Customers who choose the Lexington Book Box will have their requested items delivered every Tuesday and Friday. Customers arriving to pick up books after notification should enter the customer account number into the keypad and the locker on the box will pop open — with the selections inside.
Customers have seven days to pick up their materials, which are already checked out to them, and can return them to the book drop near the machine, the book drop at Lexington High School or any Pioneer Library System hometown library.
The library system continues to operate its information station and book drop at Lexington High School, 801 E. Broadway St. That service is available during school hours.
For more information, contact the PLS Outreach department at 801-4573 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
