*Updated: Tuesday, June 16 at 10am
Following the Governor of Virginia’s phase one guidelines, JMRL moved into Tier 4 of their COVID-19 response on Tuesday, May 26.
JMRL branches (now including Nelson Memorial Library) are reopen with a contactless curbside pick-up only option for library holds from Tuesdays-Saturdays between 10am and 2pm.
Northside Library offers pickup at the drive-up window.
During this phase, no special kits (such as toy kits), will be available to check-out.
Patrons can place holds on the JMRL website and the return due date for all library materials is back to normal.
Please be aware, there may be delays in holds due to the 72-hour quarantining of materials and limited delivery.
If patrons no longer want their holds, they should cancel them by going online or calling their branch.
Specific instructions are posted outside of each branch detailing how patrons will collect their materials and patrons can call their library branch for more details. Specific branch details are also located on http://www.jmrl.org (under the “Branches” green tab).
Book returns must be made through the book drops.
JMRL is still not accepting donations of books or media at this time.
More information, including access to virtual storytimes and virtual events, is located on http://www.jmrl.org.

Patrons should continue to follow social distancing guidelines while participating in the curbside pickups, including no contact and no access to the library buildings.
