Thank you for your patience as we work to provide services while keeping the safety of staff and customers a priority.

 

HOW CURBSIDE PICKUP WORKS:

1. Choose your pickup location when you reserve your item.

2. Once you’ve been notified that your item is ready to pick up:

  • Visit during open hours.
  • Look for the curbside pickup signs posted in the parking lot and on the doors.
  • Have your library card number ready.
  • Call the phone number on the sign.
    • Deaf or hard of hearing, text using the number provided.
  • Staff answering the phone will check out your items and bring them to your vehicle.
  • If you walked, staff will provide instructions for contact-free pickup. You must wear a face covering for walkup pickup.

If you would like staff to suggest a book, call the phone number on the sign and staff will help you.

If you would like information about our print/copy/scan/fax service, call the phone number on the sign and a staff member will provide instructions. You must wear a face covering to pick up printed and copied pages.

  • Limit: 25 pages per customer

Drive-Up Pickup is available at our New Albany, Northern Lights, Parsons, Shepard and Whitehall branches.

Main Library provides contact-free pickup of items in the atrium. Call the phone number on the sign and staff will provide instructions. You must wear a face covering to pick up items in the atrium.

There is no public entry into our branch locations.
