From the internet to electrical vehicles, we all are the witness of the golden era of technological advancement. Drones or Unmanned Aerial vehicles (UAV) are also one of the growing contributions of this technological era. Earlier drones were used only for military operations but later some multinational companies or organizations have started to use it for delivering their parcel to their customer for commercial purpose. Libraries are always competing with the changing technology by adopting different technological tools. Drone technology is also among the emerging technologies, which can be used in a library for document delivery and some of the libraries have already started to use it especially during the time of pandemic. This paper will focus on the steps to be followed for implementing library drone delivery services, pre-requisites for implementation, payload capacity of drones etc. It will also give the overview of the present status of library drone delivery service.
