Delivery

In order to ensure quick delivery of library materials, RRLC coordinates delivery services for its member libraries. This service connects the major academic libraries in the region with public and school libraries through their system offices. RRLC provides four delivery options (fees apply):

  • RRLC Delivery – through a contract with local courier JetX — for access to local libraries (see chart below)
  • RRLC Delivery with connection to Empire Library Delivery
  • Empire Library Delivery (without connection to RRLC Delivery)
  • UPS CampusShip

For information about participation and costs, please contact RRLC by email (rrlc@rrlc.org) or by phone at 585-223-7570.

RRLC Delivery: Member libraries pay a shared fee for this service. Delivery is Monday-Friday, except major holidays, at the participating libraries. Less than daily delivery is also offered. Special pick-ups are available for an additional fee. See below for the delivery schedule.
