  • Your telephone number

When can I pick up my materials?

When your items are ready, a librarian will contact you directly to schedule a pickup/delivery window. Due to reduced staffing in the building, it may take up to three business days for pickups/deliveries to be scheduled. Curbside pickups will be contact-free and scheduled to minimize overlap.

Can I request items from other libraries? 

Yes! Interlibrary loaning is now available! If there is an item that you request and we don’t own it at our library, we will request it from another library for you.

Important things you need to know:

  • Each patron with a library card (in good standing) will be allowed to check out a maximum of 5 items at this time.
