In an effort to assist patrons who have returned to work and school, DeKalb County Public Library will shift the hours for contact-free pickup on Tuesdays into the early evening starting in October. Starting October 6, contact-free pickup will be available from 1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. “We know that all patrons aren’t able to get to a branch by 4:00 p.m., so we are shifting Tuesday hours to help those who would still like the opportunity to pick up items,” said Library Director, Alison Weissinger. Monday and Wednesday-Saturday hours will remain the same.
