Contactless Curbside Pickup in 4 Easy Steps

Step 1: Place a hold in the library catalog. You can place up to 20 holds on your account.

Step 2: Wait for a confirmation email! It will take our staff some time to go pull the items off the shelves. There are over 700 holds waiting in the system, which will take time to process! Once they are ready, you will receive an email notification. They may not be available all at once, but you can pick them up in batches as you receive hold notification emails.

Step 3: In the notification email is a link to set a pick-up time. Choose a tent, a day, and a time. You will receive a confirmation email that verifies your pick up time.

Step 4: Show up at your appointed time and take your items off the table under the tent assigned to you! Sorry, we cannot take returns or donations yet.

Curbside Pickup

Curbside Service is Now Available!

First step toward our reopening –
Curbside service is rolling

Curbside service is now available. Go online, check our catalog for available items, and request them. We’ll confirm your request and provide instructions to select your pickup time. We are expecting a great response to this new service, so we ask your patience as we work to safely schedule your pickup.

We are planning to reopen the building in late July. The necessary maintenance on the library’s heating/air conditioning/ventilation system is moving along. This large scale project must be completed before we can invite you back into the building. Our curbside service will be available during weekday evenings and during the day on weekends, as we work around this HVAC work.

We know that you have materials at home and ask that you continue to hold these for now. We felt it was most important that we kickoff our curbside service first and get you the materials you’ve been wanting to check out. We will let you know soon when materials can be returned.

Remember we are here to help you. Know that you can contact us at 734-453-0750, ext 200 or online at for assistance.
