When you know what you’d like, contact the library to make sure that we have the item. When you call to request items, you will be asked which day you would like to pick up. The borrowing period for your items will be 3 weeks. 

What To Expect When You Pick Up


In order to assure a safe experience for you and for our staff, we will bag your items in a plastic bag and put your first name on it.  When we gather your items, staff will be masked, and gloved.  The items you receive will have a 3 day quarantine period before they are bagged. 

Contactless Pick Up

Your bag of book selections will be placed outside the front entrance of the library during operating hours. Bags not picked up during that time will not be left out after business hours. 


The book return drop box is open 24 hours. These items will then be quarantined for 3 days before they return to circulation. If it’s raining, you can still pick up holds.

Additional Information

We will keep your items on the hold shelf  for 7 days before the hold expires. After 7 days, you’d need to request the items again.

Our patrons are dearly missed! We are so happy that we can provide this service to you and am looking forward to being able to open the building when it is safe.
