Molly Pruitt Library to temporarily suspend Contact-Free Pickup service from June 29 through July 13

North East Independent School District to temporarily close all locations, including Pruitt Library, to limit spread of COVID-19

SAN ANTONIO (June 30, 2020) – As a result of North East Independent School District's (NEISD) decision to close all locations to limit the spread of COVID-19, San Antonio Public Library's (SAPL) Molly Pruitt Library will temporarily close from June 29 through July 13. In an effort to continue to provide uninterrupted library services, during this closure, library materials on reserve and available to be picked up at the Pruitt Library will be mailed to patrons. Reservations of library materials after this Thursday, July 2, will be available for pickup at the Thousand Oaks Branch Library.  Library patrons will be notified once these materials are available for Contact-Free Pickup.   The book drop at Pruitt Library will not be accepting returns during this time.  SAPL’s Digital Library is also available online at mysapl.org/digital.

 By way of background, NEISD operates the Pruitt Library as a public library in a partnership with the City of San Antonio. The Pruitt Library also serves as the high school library. NEISD announced on Sunday, June 28, the closure of all school locations in response to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in the San Antonio and Bexar County area. Pruitt Library is expected to resume Contact-Free Pickup on July 14. For questions, please call 210-207-2500 Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. or visit ask.mysapl.org to chat with a SAPL librarian.
