Houston Cole Library Offering Curbside Service During Storm Cleanup

Houston Cole Library Offering Curbside Service During Storm Cleanup


With the Library building closed to the public due to storm damage, beginning Wednesday, 20 March, the Library will offer curbside service to deliver circulating items to students, faculty, and staff. Patrons may pick up requested items at the covered Gamecock Shuttle stop located between the Library and Martin Hall. Curbside delivery will be offered 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. until Friday, 22 March. The service will be evaluated after Spring Break, and may be discontinued depending on the progress of construction at the Library. 

Students, faculty, and staff wishing to use the Library’s curbside delivery service may call any reference librarian or contact the circulation desk at (256) 782-5758. Please note this service is offered only for *circulating* items; reference and other non-circulating items are excluded. When making their requests, patrons will need to provide Library staff with: 

  • A list of the items being requested
  • A time the items will be picked up
  • Contact information (the patron’s name, student number, and an email/phone number) 

Patrons will be *required* to show a photo ID at the pick-up site in order to receive their requested items. 

Please note that the book drop (located in the Library parking lot) is open, and patrons may use it at any time to return their materials.

The Library apologizes for any inconvenience occasioned by construction efforts. Further information regarding Library operations will be forthcoming after Spring Break.
