Lithgow cardholders can now place requests for Lithgow Library items, either via the MINERVA online catalog or by phone. We will arrange touchless curbside pickup for your safety. All items have a 3-week circulation period. We also offer limited computing, printing & photocopying. Curbside & computer services are available Monday-Thursday, 10-6, and Friday 9-5. Requests for statewide library items should begin later this summer.
