How does curbside work for a library?

Members of the public will NOT be allowed inside the buildings.

Place a hold on items through the online catalog or by calling the library to make a request.

When you are notified that your items are available, come to the parking lot and call the library using your cell phone (or knock on the door). Your items will be brought out to you.  Only items that have been reserved ahead of time will be available.

Social distancing rules will be observed, and staff will be wearing masks. Patrons are encouraged to do the same when accepting materials from library staff members.

Library materials that have been returned will be set aside in quarantine for 72 hours for disinfection purposes.  All materials picked up by patrons at curbside will have been quarantined already.

Due dates for all items that are currently checked out have been extended to June 1. Returns may be made anytime at the drop boxes in each library’s parking lot.


For more information, please call the Library at 828.743.0215.
