Update on Curb-side-Service and Holds

HOLDS AND CURB-SIDE SERVICE

To use curb-side service:

  1. Place your items on hold in our online catalog.
  2. You’ll be notified when items are available.
  3. After you’re notified, call your library branch to schedule a pick-up time.

Staff will be answering phones during the following times for you to schedule your curb-side pickup.  If no one answers, please keep trying as our call volume is very high right now. Please do not drop-in at any library location without scheduling with us first -- we have systems in place to keep staff and patrons safe that we need to follow. We will keep all current holds on the hold shelf through June 1st regardless of pull date.
