How do I pick up my library materials?

Follow the simple steps below to pick up your library materials.

  1. Wait to receive notice from the library that your holds are ready. You will have three days from the date of notice to pick up your holds.
  2. Drive to the library you chose as your pickup location. Call the library once you have parked your car. Please park near the main entrance. Do not use the book drop parking.
  3. Wait for staff to bring your holds out to your vehicle and place them in the trunk. Do not exit your vehicle, and keep your windows rolled up.
  4. Please have your library card number ready when you call. You will need to provide the make, color and license plate number of your car so staff can identify your vehicle.

How do I return library materials?

The library building remains closed to the public, but our book drops are open. Returned materials will not be checked in until after a 72-hour quarantine minimum.

Will I receive a fine for late returns?

We will not start charging fines until July 7th. Fines of $10 or greater can be paid via MY ACCOUNT.
