Also, the library has started a Pop In/Pick Up service allowing patrons to put books or other items on hold and then to pick up those items without personal contact.

That service is available at five sites, including the Trails West branch at 11401 E. 23rd St. in Independence and the Central Library in downtown Kansas City.

Next week, Pop In/Pick Up services are to be expanded to include the other five library locations, including the Sugar Creek branch at 102 S. Sterling.

Pop In/Pick Up services will be available Tuesdays through Fridays, from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m.

Patrons can put items on hold by visiting the library website at and then clicking on the heading “Books/Music/Movies/Digital.” Once an item is selected, the patron will be able to select which library branch to use for the Pop In/Pick Up service.

A patron arriving at a library branch will call the library and will wait outside. Library staff will notify the patron when to enter the building to pick up the item without having personal contact.
