Summer Book Delivery Schedule

If you're taking a summer class, please make a note of this important information!

In the summer, the book delivery service provided by MIC -- the group of libraries with which we share our catalog (more here) -- is scaled back. This affects books that you find in our library catalog and request using the "Make a Request" link. Here is this summer's delivery schedule:

  • Through Friday, June 18: Tuesday & Thursday only
  • June 21 through July 9: Daily Monday through Friday (no delivery Monday, July 5)
  • July 12 through August 20: Tuesday & Thursday
  • Starting August 23: Daily Monday through Friday
If you have questions about what day a request you have made will arrive at your requested pickup point, please call the LNDL circulation desk at (410) 617-6801.

If you find yourself in a jam, don't forget that you can always go directly to the college that holds the book you need. You can also check the catalogs of other area libraries that offer LNDL patrons the ability to borrow material (they're the starred ones). And don't forget that the Enoch Pratt Free Library has extensive holdings that might just include what you're looking for. Get in touch with the LNDL reference desk if you need help figuring this out.

The regular delivery schedule -- daily, Monday through Friday -- will resume in the fall. We'll keep you posted!
