Library Service Update

Description

Follow the steps below to enjoy our new Contactless Pick-Up and Drop-Off service.

Step 1 - PLACE A HOLD - Explore our online catalog and place items on hold online or by calling any Library location.

Step 2 - CALL - Once you've been informed that your materials are ready for pick-up, call the location where you put the items on hold to receive location-specific contactless pick-up instructions. Materials will not be ready until after you call the location. Please note some items may take longer than normal to be ready for pick-up.

Step 3 - ENJOY - Late fines are not being incurred at this time so enjoy your materials a little longer than usual if you like.

Step 4 - RETURN - Return the materials to the Library by placing them in the return containers located outside.

Step 5 - REPEAT - Do it all over again. Place more items on hold and come see us again. We've missed you.

Additional information related to expanding services can be found on the Library Service Update page.
