Pioneer Library System to add Book Boxes at Lexington City Hall

Photo of Book Boxes by Penni Pace MixDuring the repair period for the James C. Nance Memorial Bridge between Purcell and Lexington, the Pioneer Library System is working to offer more options for residents of Lexington whose library services have been affected by the bridge closure.

The library has worked with City Manager Charlie McCown and his staff and has added book boxes adjacent to Lexington City Hall, 111 W. Broadway St. The boxes are located on the corner of the City Hall building in the doorway alcove between City Hall and the Lexington Police Station.

The book boxes are lockers that resemble mailboxes but hold books that customers request from the Pioneer Library System catalog. Customers who choose the Lexington Book Box will then have their requested items delivered every Tuesday and Friday.  Customers arriving to pick up their books after notification will enter the customer account number into the keypad and the locker on the box will pop open – with the selections inside.
