UPDATE: KLE Courier resumed services on May 18th, with delivery of items in Henry Industries’ warehouses only. On May 26th the courier continued delivery services and began pick-up of backlogged items from libraries. On June 8th KLE libraries will begin to introduce new ILL items into the courier system for pick up and delivery.
At this time, KLE Courier is NOT connecting with our out-of-state partners; Trans-Amigos Express and Blue Sky.
Here is a link that is keeping track of library open/closures and courier statuses across the state of Kansas. Please note, there is a ‘courier’ column. https://kslib.info/1438/Library-Closings

Our Trans-Amigos Express partners report that courier service is suspended until further notice.
There is a wealth of information available regarding the current coronavirus. The KLE Courier will continue to provide service to libraries at their regularly scheduled days and times. Libraries and drivers will do their best to adhere to social distancing guidelines and non-contact service exchanges. Library staff and drivers are strongly encouraged to wear a mask during the exchange process. All materials will quarantine for 72 hours upon arrival from the courier, before they are handled and processed. Here are some “common sense/best practices” for courier processing:
Below are some links that may be helpful to you.
1. Enter holiday dates in SHAREit ASAP so requests don’t get delayed
2. Notify Caroline at the courier office so courier deliveries are stopped via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
3. If you can use SHAREit from home, be generous in requesting and granting renewals
