TAE Courier service has resumed in most of our hubs. To minimize issues, this is being cautiously carried out as part of a rolling and phased plan. Please refer to your most recent Tlist listserv update for currently open hubs and more details. If you are not currently receiving our listserv updates, please request access at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the last week, over 50% of our member libraries have chosen to close or suspend service due to the developing COVID-19 outbreak. Our partner courier networks, KLE, Mobius, and MALA have temporarily closed, as well as many of our peers through the US. Over the weekend, Dallas County issued a "shelter-in-place" order that takes effect 11:59pm, Monday, March 23, 2020. Due to this order, the Dallas offices of Amigos Library Services will temporarily close as of 5:00 p.m. this afternoon.
Please note: The Amigos/TAE office will be closed December 22 - January 1, reopening on January 2. During this time, staff will check the TAE email inbox with the exceptions of Christmas and New Year's Day. The courier will not run service on these two holidays.
