deliverIT CT (formerly Connecticar): About deliverIT CT

Statewide Library Delivery Service

Update

Update: May 29 deliverIT CT has been suspended since March 16th when a majority of CT libraries closed to the public due to the COVID19 pandemic.During that time the Supervisor of Transportation has been working with me to:

  • Work with libraries to establish a new norm of contact-less delivery for the health and safety of all parties involved with delivery. We deeply appreciate the cooperation and accommodation of most libraries to achieve this goal.
  • Van Block sorting facility was re-configured to establish a more efficient workflow and also to accommodate social distancing in a small space.​
  • Routes were assessed and refined to maximize existing resources. 
We were also able to hire 2 new f/t drivers to fill long vacant positions. For the first time in 3.5 years we are fully staffed with 2 back-up drivers. The new drivers were thoroughly trained in the service, on the routes and worked with the Supervisor to establish the contact-less service.
 
On Friday June 5th, deliverIT CT will resume a limited service to libraries that have accommodated contact-less access:
  • On June 5th, drivers will be returning materials to libraries still in vans and the sorting facility but will not be picking up any materials.​
  • One Monday June 8th, drivers will be conducting a limited 3 day clean out of materials returned to libraries after March 16th. Each library will be able to place up to 6 bins in their sheds or in designated areas approved by deliverIT Supervisor. 
  • Drivers will pick up the 6 bins on Monday and spend the next 1-2 days returning materials to libraries from that pick up. They will not be picking up any bins during this phase.
  • Once agreed on there will also be a special pick up for academic ILL materials. There is a task force currently working on that.
  • Regular deliverIT CT service "3 bins in, 3 bins out up to 5 days a week'" will resume on the 11th or 12th.
Drivers will be subject to strict health and safety guidelines:
  • They will have their temperature taken each morning
  • They will be required to wear masks and gloves
  • They will be required to regularly wash their hands and sanitize
  • Their vans will be sanitized every day​
  • ​They are advised to report any conditions deemed unsafe
This is subject to change due to any additional guidance from state DAS or the Governor's Office.
We appreciate your patience, and if you have any questions please use the deliverIT CT contact form.
