Q. What items can be shipped via the ground courier service?
Materials that can be shipped via the ground courier service are:
- items on loan that must be returned (e.g., books, sound recordings, or videos), and
- items that may be retained by the recipient (e.g., photocopies).
The courier service will accept packages up to 70 lbs. and 130” in length and girth.
KYVL will provide participating libraries with zippered bags in which to ship materials via the ground courier service. Multiple items being shipped to a single site may be shipped in a single bag as long as the bag can be zipped without strain on the seams of the bag. If materials to be shipped do not fit in a zippered bag or if a library runs out of bags, then padded envelopes and carton/boxes may be used. Multiple bags/containers may be sent to a single site.
