Please note:

  • Once we receive your request, we will need time to locate the item(s) you are looking for.
  • Because of the high volume of requests, we currently cannot offer same day service. On average fulfillment of requests are taking a minimum of a few days and can vary from day to day.
  • Expect longer delays from items coming from other locations.
  • Once we process your request, we will call you to schedule a curbside pickup at our 9th Street entrance at the 800 Main Street location.
  • All holds will need to have a scheduled appointment for pickup.
  • You may drop off materials when you pick up your holds.

Thank you for your patience during this time.

*For your safety, all items have been properly quarantined as per CDC regulations, and staff wear protective gloves when handling materials.

  • Patrons will place items in a bin that a staff person will roll out to their car. Patrons with physical disabilities may let staff know when they arrive and staff will do the best they can to assist.
