Upcoming Changes to Library Summit Courier Service: Summit Delivery Delays

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

As part of the Orbis Cascade Alliance, George Fox library patrons enjoy access to materials at 39 member libraries, with items being delivered via a courier to both Newberg and Portland campuses five days a week. In order to improve delivery and turnaround times, the Alliance is transitioning to a new courier service this summer.

During the transition to the new system, Summit deliveries will be delayed for items requested from June 26 to July 5. Summit requests can still be made during this period, but those items will be delivered after July 5.

We highly recommend placing orders for Summit materials ASAP, in order to get them before the delays are in effect. Thank you for your patience during this process as we transition to a new courier service. We look forward to being able to provide improved service going forward!

Questions about your Summit requests? Please contact the circulation department.
