Curbside Pickup Is Now Grab-and-Go

With the advent of colder and wetter weather, Curbside Pickup is now Grab-and-Go.  When you have been notified that items you've requested are on the hold shelf, you can schedule an appointment to pick them up in the Activity Room (on the Lower Level). Grab-and-Go is available Monday–Thursday, 10:00am to 7:00pm and Friday and Saturday, 10:00am to 4:00pm.  Please follow social distancing protocols and wear a mask to pick up your Grab-and-Go items.  If you miss your pickup day, please notify us within one day to reschedule, or your items may be given to the next person waiting for them, reshelved, or returned to the owning library.

Returning Library Materials

Library materials may be placed in the book drop located in the parking lot next to the parking payment kiosks. It's a big silver bin with two slots for returning books and media. You can either drive up or walk up. Library materials returned are quarantined for 72 hours before they are checked in and shelved.
