The Columbia Public Library began offering curbside pickup service for reserved materials on Monday, May 19. Library patrons were able to call in or place online requests in advance. The parking lot was marked with designated spots where drivers were instructed to open their trunk or rear hatch so library staff could deliver books, DVDs and other items without physical contact.
