How does curbside pickup work?

  • Get started by visiting the library catalog.
  • Look for items that are available now and place a request.
  • You will receive a notification from the library that you have items available for pickup. Set your own pickup appointment, or call the branch and we can help you get set up.
  • Once you schedule an appointment, you will receive details about where to pick up your items when you arrive at the library.
  • Your items will be placed on a table or cart outside the library. If you have items to return, please put them in the book return.

I received multiple notifications for items I have waiting for me, do I need more than one curbside appointment?

No. All items you have waiting for you will be included in your curbside package, even if you received multiple notifications from the library. Only one appointment is needed.

What if I no longer want to check out the items I have on hold?

Please call the branch where your items are waiting and we will help cancel your holds.
Find your branch's phone number here.

Are the libraries open so that we can browse for items?

Yes! Click here for branch hours.

What if I can't remember my library card number and PIN to place a request?

We can help with that, too. Email us or call your branch, and we will get you set up.

What about interlibrary loans?

At this time, we are not accepting new interlibrary loan requests. If you have an interlibrary loan item waiting for you from before the time we closed, we will include this item in your curbside pickup appointment.

Is this safe? Are the books clean?

All returned library books are quarantined for three days before processing and shelving. This time period is based on CDC recommendations: Paper (24 hours), Plastics (2-3 days). Staff are using CDC-recommended practices for handling your materials.

We ask that you practice social distancing, self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms, and wear face masks when you pick up your materials from the library.
