How curbside service works? 

Place orders for items 3 different ways:

1.   Go onto the library system catalog HERE to place a hold.

2.  Or email library staff at with your requests. Please include 

    title, author, your name, phone number and library card number.

3.  Or call the library during service hours at 338-5580



Allow library staff 24 hours to gather items from our collection, while items from other libraries will take longer. 

Magazines are also available to check out upon request.


If you don't know exactly what titles you want, tell staff what genre you would like, and we will pick titles for you.  


You will be notified as usual when items are ready for pick up, AND THEN you must call, email, or click HERE to schedule a pickup time. To schedule using the link, click on the curbside pickup button on the day and time you prefer. In the pop-up, make sure that you see your name in parenthesis and then click save. 


When you arrive at the library, please wear a mask. Open the front door of the library and there will be a table with a bag of your materials for you to take. 


Many libraries are putting returns into quarantine for 72 hours (3 days), which is the  recommended amount of time of quarantine for library materials. Any fines accrued during this 3-day window will be waived.
