Every attempt will be made to deliver or pick up materials within a three week cycle. We will maintain a rotating schedule by county, weather permitting.
Please be sure to leave your contact phone number(s), and let us know the current location of the patron who wishes to have library service. Specific directions are important. Also, let us know if the patron wants materials in English or Spanish, and if there are any specific requests.
The above information
is a mock-up, but gives an idea of the methods by which patrons or, more
likely, their employers will contact the library.
Mode of operation: The ideal schedule would involve delivery and pickup of materials by the librarian once every three weeks. A rotating schedule would allow for visiting one county route per week. Weather could alter the schedule, as sudden rainstorms turn serviceable dirt roads into impassable gumbo clay in a flash.
Materials could be requested in person, by phone, or by email. The librarian would work three days a week on the road, and two days in the library office June, July, and August. Hours in May and September would be fewer, as the driving duties would lessen, and require only local trips to pick up and return materials as needed. During the rest of the year, only simple maintenance of the website would be needed. Promotional activities would be developed during the off-season, as well.
The Alone on the Range library project would be sponsored by the Rangely Public Library, Rangely, Colorado.
