Pick-Up Your Order At The Library

Once you are notified your order is ready, you may come to pick it up. We ask our patrons to help us curb the effects of Covid-19 by following best safety practices. When picking up your materials, please use these helpful tips to stay safe and keep library staff members safe.

Please Do:

Call the library to let us know that you have arrived to pick-up your order.

Tell us the make, model and color or your car.

Open your trunk (or passenger door) so that library staff may safely place your order in your vehicle.

Leave the items in your trunk for several days of quarantine to be extra cautious if you prefer.

Place your returning items into the book drop as you enter the library parking lot.

Please Avoid:

Giving your returning items to a library staff member. These must be placed in one of the outside book drops.
