I would like to confirm there are no exceptions to the 830 am to 5 pm delivery timeframe.

We request that library delivery service takes places between 8:30-5:00p.m. on scheduled days.There may be a few libraries (less than 6) that do not open until 10:00a.m. or 12:00p.m. on selected days and we would expect the vendor to provide service accordingly.
