Curbside Service

Hello, everyone – some difficult news this morning to share with you all:

Due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in Garrett County, all branches of the Ruth Enlow Library will be returning to curbside service only as of Wednesday, November 18, at our normal operating hours. 

As a reminder, here’s what our services will look like:

  • Patrons can call when they arrive at the Library and staff will place materials in a bag on a table outside for pickup.
  • Drive-thru window service is available at the Grantsville branch.
  • Inter-branch deliveries will continue, as will deliveries from Washington and Allegany Counties as well as interlibrary loan.
  • Our phone services will continue for anyone who needs assistance.
  • Our bookdrops will remain open, but late fees will be suspended while we’re in the “curbside only” model.  Materials will still be quarantined for 48 hours before being checked in.
  • Library Wifi is still available from outside of the buildings for those of you who need to connect.


Your Library is still here for you, however! 


Please stay safe, all of you – wear masks in public, maintain social distance and minimize social contact for a while, and we’ll all get through this – we’re looking forward to reopening and seeing you all again!

Thomas Vose, Director
