Curbside Pickup

Our Curbside Pickup Service is touchless.

Monday - Thursday: 9 am – 9 pm
Friday and Saturday: 9 am – 5 pm

A library staff member will bring out your holds and, after verifying your identity, the staff member will place the items in the trunk of your vehicle (or drop them into the backseat through an open window).  Please use the outside return drop for returning items. 



Place A Hold

You can place a hold in a variety of ways:


Wait for Pickup Notice

Please allow one (1) business day for available holds to be processed. You will receive a notification (via text, email, or phone call) saying your hold is available.

Please do not come to the Library until you receive a notification. 




To pick up your holds, park in one of the marked curbside pickup spaces in front of the building, call the Library, and provide your name and parking spot number.

If you do not have a cell phone, simply call before leaving home and provide an estimated time of arrival.
