Sunnyside Public Library is offering Curbside Pickup. The service will be available from 1:00-7:00 Monday through Thursday, until further notice.

You can request materials by calling the library at Kelly at 970-375-3816 or emailing at khenderson@durangoschools.org. You can request general subject matter or specific titles found in the library catalog at destiny.durangoschools.org

You can pick up your materials from the pick-up bin or by calling the library from the parking lot and we’ll bring your materials out to you. You may also return previously checked out material in the return bin. Both bins will be located by the front door.

Books and DVD are sanitized, held a minimum of three days and placed in sanitized plastic bags for our patron’s safety and privacy, before being placed into the bin. I also take the precaution of wearing gloves while cleaning and putting books in the bin. I change my gloves before and after each process to prevent cross-contamination on materials. 

Don’t have a library card? You can fill out the application on our website at https://swlplibrarydistrict.org/sunnyside-library-card-registration/ or by phone (970-375-3816). 

We’re happy to be serving you again!
